When the republic was but eighteen years of age and Thomas Jefferson
was yet President the University of Maryland School of Medicine had its
beginnings in a law enacted by the State Legislature. The population of
Baltimore was less than thirty thousand, and there were but four other
medical schools in existence in this country. Seven students enrolled for
the first session and classes were held in various rented and private buildings.
Because of the inadequacy of these structures and active public resistance
to attempts at anatomical dissection and demonstration, the need for a
permanent location soon became acute.
A lottery was authorized by the legislature and bond was supplied by
faculty members and public spirited citizens. Plans were drawn up by R.
Carey Long, an eminent architect of the times, and construction of the
present Pantheonesque edifice was begun in 1811 with the Revolutionary
hero. Col. John Eager Howard, laying the cornerstone.
The building was occupied in 1812-1813 and represents today the
oldest building in the United States from which the degree Doctor of Medi-
cine has been granted annually since its inception. It stands today, a monu-
ment to its sons who have devoted their lives to the teaching and practice
of medicine, and an inspiration to each new generation of graduates. Re-
plete with legend and steeped in tradition, in its solid permanency it bids
well to endure for centuries.
The close of this four year period
of study will signal the division of a
closely knit class into separate careers
of medical practice, in many cases
so far away that future reunion will
be improbable, if not impossible.
Memories of malodorous cadavers,
known quite intimately to be sure;
memories of mercilous exams; mem-
ories of those pseudo-formal dances
and frankly informal beer parties;
memories of professors whose lives
are dedicated to the teaching of medi-
cine; these would perhaps fade as
time all too hastily consumes us, if
it were not for a text of this sort to
bring back the life we knew as as-
pirants to the degree Doctor of Medi-
Assuming literary license, we hav^
treated with flippancy personalities,
specialties, and ideals. Let it be un-
derstood without question that our de-
votion and respect for our confreres,
teachers, and profession is beyond re-

Out of the shadows of war and in the wake of victory came a
freshman class composed chiefly of those who had done their part
toward winning World War II# Largely the class was made up of
mature men and women, both veterans and non-veterans#
From the start this class of 1950 has given me the impres-
sion of stability, loyalty to its school, cooperation with the
administration, and a humane interest in the welfare of its
schoolmates# In addition, it has manifested an awareness of the
responsibilities of its profession to society through its
seriousness and degree of accomplishment#
To these men and women of 1950 I extend ny sincere good
wishes for their happiness and feel safe in predicting their
success as physicians#

Entomology (bugs to the rest of us) has always fascinated Andy, who
is a native Baltimorean, and he still claims it as his favorite hobby. He
left the city on an Army conducted excursion tour in May of '43 and re-
turned in '45 after taking some pre-medical training at The Citadel. In
1946 he acquired an A.B. from The Johns Hopkins University. Past sum-
mers have been spent at Seton Institute and West Baltimore General Hos-
pital. Andy will intern at Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore and then
go into general practice with the idea of later specializing in pediatrics
or internal medicine.
September 10, 1919 marked the birth of a man whose desire to become
o streetcar conductor has been suppressed (except on occasion) by on even
greater desire to assume o place in medicine. He attended John Carroll
University, Wagner College and the University of Buffalo for his pre-
med training. John served in the Army Medical Department for 5 years
os o medical technician. On June 4, 1945 in Neosho, Missouri, he and
Jeon Agnes Moickle joined hands and the blend has produced John Moickle,
3, and Martha Kay, 1. John has spent his summers working in state parks
and dabbling at his hobbies of wood working and hunting. He will intern
at Norfolk, Virginia with the U.S. Public Health Service.
Charlie was chipped off the "neurogenic bloc" on May 30, 1922 in
Baltimore, Maryland. He attended both Princeton and Loyola College
of Baltimore, receiving a B.S. from the latter in 1944. From then until
August 30, 1946 he was a combatless, combat correspondent for the U.S.
Marines. Further favoring his literary bent his first vacation was spent
as editor of a New Jersey weekly. Subsequent vacations were occupied
with an OB externship at Baltimore City Hospitals and as an extern in the
University Hospital Accident Room, and a substitute intern also at the
University, where after graduation he will serve his internship.
On Ocfober 10, 1922, in Baltimore, Mary first opened her wide eyes
and emitted a scream of protest. A physician's daughter, her future was
from the start predestined to be that of the stethescope and percussion ham-
mer. She took her pre-med at the College of Notre Dame, and in 1943 was
awarded the B.A. degree. Mary joined our class in the third year following
a years leave of absence during which she worked in the laboratory of the
Rosewood Training School. She has returned there each summer to dabble
in porphyria research. The Christmas Vacation of 1949 will long be
remembered by Mary, for that too short vacation was consumed by a much
too long wedding ceremony and a much too short honeymoon, spent with
George Ward Barstow, a student of agriculture at College Park. Mary will
intern at Mercy Hospital here in Baltimore.
An outspoken individualist from Rahway, New Jersey, Bill attended
Rutgers University and the University of Maryland before joining the class.
On June 2, 1945 in Cambridge, Maryland he married Mary Howard Sim-
mons, and to odd some zest to life there are Mary Howard, 2, and Wilbur
Nelson, Jr. In his summers. Bill and his crew cut have pushed ice cream
sales for Good Humors, and catheters for the University Hospital. A Delta
Upsilon, he will intern at University Hospitol and whenever finding time
and winds favorable, will continue to indulge his passion for sailing in local
waters; or if the breezes foil, he will pursue his well known nimrodic
Jay was born on November 16, 1927, a noisy, uninhibited Id in pixil-
loted Washington, D.C. Perhaps his stork hod o Freudian bent, at any rote
by the time he had completed his pre-med studies at the University of
Pennsylvania, Jay hod decided he wanted to unsnarl superegos. His varied
summer activities included the role of camp doctor to a bunch of young
hellions bent on self destruction. Wearing a quite conventional gleam in
his eye. Jay married Lynne G. Goldsweig on June 5, 1949. Treasurer and
Senator of Phi Delto Epsilon, he will intern at Gollinger Municipal Hospital
in Washington, D.C.; and after the necessary additional troining Jay will
prod about amid Ids, Egos, Superegos, and income tox forms in his psychia-
"Bleek" arrived in Los Angeles, California on June 2, 1926, sons
sport coot or dork glosses, but very suitobly dressed for the beach. This
explains, no doubt, why he attended U.C.L.A., become o summertime life-
guard, and, is frankly mod about those west coost beoches: swimming,
borrocudos, borecuties et ol. A member of Nu Sigmo Nu ond Alpha Omego
Alpha, "Bleek" did his externship stint at Sonto Monica Hospitol, Colif.
When he returns to the west coast and Los Angeles County Hospital for his
internship he will nonetheless continue to have local ties because Dr. Betty
Storm from Frederick Md. will help him pack his sport coots and moke
his morning coffee after June 1950, as ''Betty Storm Bleecker, M.D."
On January 14, 1925, Frank looked his ma's obstretician squarely
in the eye as he shouldered his way into the center of things in Luke, Md.
Always on the look out he served as an Army Ground Forces' Rador
Operator in 1943 and 1944. After attending Cornell University in 1944
Fronk went on to complete his pre-med at the University of Marylond.
Both a Sigma Alpha Epsilon and a Nu Sigma Nu, Frank kept busy sum-
mers looking things over as an extern at the Potomac Valley Hospital in
Keyser, West Virginia in '46 and '48 and the Pennisula General Hospital,
Salisbury, Maryland in '49. Always one to know his own mind Fronk
intends, after an internship at the University Hospital to do general practice,
or surgery, or internol medicine, although his special interest in psychiatry.
"Brad" was just a little "tacker" when he checked into Washington,
D.C. on August 10, 1921. Nailing down a B.S. at the University of Mary-
land, Brad then took time out for three years in the Navy — back when they
sailed their ships on water — before joining the gang in 1946. Vice Presi-
dent and House Manager of the Nu Sigma Nu, Brad was sharp as a tack
when he married artistic, honey-haired Nancy June Ferneyhough August 13,
1949 in Riverdale, Maryland where he now "hangs his hat". A Casualty
Hospital, Washington, D.C., extern last summer. Brad will intern at the
University Hospital and then true to his beginning will do a general practice
in Washington, D.C.
Since July 16, 1924 Joe has made this monumental city his home
town. He attended St. Briget's School, Loyola High School, and graduated
from Loyola College with a B.S. degree. A past president of Nu Sigma
Nu, Joe was an Alpha Sigma Nu at Loyola and a Phi Delta Theta at
College Park. An outdoor man, he enjoys hunting and fishing and is of
course properly appreciative of Chesapeake Bay beauties. Joe spent last
summer as a junior intern at University Hospital and will return this year.
The moral to this story is, if one is born here, the son of a physician in prac-
tice here, if one were raised here, attended school here and interned here, one
might just as well practise here: which Joe has every intention of doing.
"Burk" first voiced his interest in things July 20, 1926, at Cumber-
land, Maryland. While garnering a B.S. at St. Francis Callege, Loretto,
Pennsylvania and a smattering of the U.S. Pharmacopeo at the University of
Maryland School of Pharmocy, Burk developed a yen for basketball,
football, fishing, and aquatic sports in which he hos found little time to
indulge these last four years. A member af Nu Sigma Nu while in medical
school, Fred served as Historian of that fraternity in 1948 - 1949. His
summers recently past have been occupied with junior internships at Cas-
ualty Hospital Washington, D.C. and the Relay Sanitarium with an occas-
sional fling at Issac-Waltonish relaxation along the local streams. An eligi-
ble bachelor as we go to press, Burk hopes, following an internship at Mercy
Hospital in Pittsburgh, to study surgery and then head for Cumberlond,
which he still calls home.
Born a Baltimorean on May 14, 1923, Guy completed his premed
studies at Springfield College, Gettysburg College, and the University of
Maryland. After serving as an Armed Forces Radio Announcer for the
Navy, Guy married Alice K. Graybill on September 15, 1945. Mrs.
Chelton is an M.D. also, but the rumor that Guy uses his wife's notes is a
foul canard! He has proven his scholastic ability beyond a shadow of a
doubt both by being selected for Alpha Omega Alpha membership and by
being awarded the Fredrica Gehrmann Scholarship in the junior year and
the Linthicum Scholarship in the senior year. Guy is one of those rare
fellows who while consistantly ranking first scholastically also rates as a
"real guy" with his confreres. He is a Nu Sigma Nu and is vice-president
of the Senior Class. After interning at the U.S. Marine Hospital, Balti-
more, Guy intends to specialize in internal medicine.
A native Baltimorean as of October 17, 1925, Jerry received his A.B.
degree from The Johns Hopkins University before coming to med school.
Far from being a dull grind, this genial aspiront to a career in internal
medicine takes time to cultivate outside interests. He is marshall for
Phi Sigma Delta and is particularly interested in radio construction and
design. During the past two summers he has, for some reason best known to
himself, seen fit to work in hospitals. In 1948 he held the prestige-ridden
office of clinical clerk in our own medical dispensory. Fired with success,
he returned to new conquests as a junior intern at West Baltimore General
Hospital in 1949. All this should make him a most welcome intern ot
Sinai Hospital, Baltimore, this year.
Tom the frenetic Tarheel was born chanting Carolina football cheers on
August 2, 1926, in Granite Falls, North Carolina. This neonatal laison
was further cemented when in '46 the University granted our poem-writing
lad an A.B. degree. These past four years were spent in an exhaustive
study of Baltimore nursing pulchritude. It is widely rumored that it was
the frantic clicking of Tom's incisors while engaged in this latter research
that cost him one set of upper teeth during his sophomore year. Tom him-
self spikes this succinctly, "I was merely teething on o steering wheel!"
Having completed his local investigations and a junior internship at St.
Joseph's Hospital, Tom will move to the University of Texas Medical
Branch Hospital in Galveston for his internship. This Phi Chi intends
eventually to return to his beloved Carolina and raise some little Toms.
The din of political machinery was eclipsed on March 1923
when Joseph R. Cowen was born in the nation's capital. His education at
the University of Chicago interrupted by a tour of duty in the Army in
1943, Joe returned to his premedical studies at The Johns Hopkins Uni-
versity, where he finished in 1946. A junior internship at French Hospital
New York, and some advanced studies in the Graduate School of Columbia
University account for his summers. He is treasurer and historian of
Phi Delta Epsilon ond on the honor roll of the National Board. After
an internship at Wayne County General Hospital and Infirmary in Eloise,
Michigan, he expects to moke his mark in neuro-psychiatry.
On December 18, 1917, when Bill began life in Charleston, W. Va. his
hair was not yet generously splashed with gray and his "pants'' were habitual-
ly rumpled; a far cry from the self controlled, impeccable product of
Virginia Military Institute we all know. Bill spent five years in the Army,
a good part of it in the dismal surroundings of the P.W. camps maintained
by "Aryan hospitality" for reluctant allied "tourists". Satiated with
things German and military. Bill, trading the "frying pan for the fire"
plunged into the comfort ridden, luxurious liesurly life of a medical
student along with the rest of us in 1946. A Phi Chi, he has spent his
summers externing and after completing an internship at Union Memorial
Hospital, Baltimore Bill expects to lend his precise habits to the practice
On February 11, 1926 heavy lidded Lenny entered Raleigh, North
Carolina in a relaxed state from which he's never recovered. He earned
his A.B. at the University of North Carolina with a Chemistry major.
Scribe of Phi Delta Epsilon in 48-49 and Consul in 49-50, Len spent a
summer externing at Elizabeth Buxton Hospital, Newport News, Virginia
followed by a Smoky Mountain "Escapade". This easy going lad who has
been known to blink but never to startle intends to intern.at Sinai Hospital
Baltimore enroute to his favorite, un-named specialty.
Maybe there is more to the genetic theory than we think, for Miriam
Abbott was born to Dr. and Dr. Shamer on January 26, 1925, and is naw
in a similar position herself, having married the classmate on the next page
on June 28, 1948. A tight team, the Dalys have together done everything
from honeymooning to selling Christmas trees to interning at West Baltimore
General Hospital. Miriam graduated from Goucher with an A.B. and has
been class secretary during the Freshman and Sophomore years. Vivacious,
whether perched on a lab stool or a piano bench, she has summered taking
census for the Baltimore City Health Department and working with the Fed-
eral Bureau of Supply. After an internship at West Baltimore General
Hospital she would like to do some general practice and raise somewhat
less than a Daily Dazen.
Born July T, 1924 in Elkhart, Indiana, Hoi now makes his home
in Silver Spring, Maryland. He took his pre-med at the University of
Moryland and spent an emphatic 2 years, 8 months, and 17 days in the
Navy Medical Corps. In June of 1948 he underwent the double trauma of
State Board examinations and a church ceremony at which he and MiriamAb-
bott Shamer were married. Not one to succomb easily, he spent the re-
mainder of the summer as a medical technician at Bolling Field. At West
Baltimore General Hospital for a junior internship, he will return there
for his senior internship and thereafter do G.P. or internal medicine.
Born in Denver, Colorado, August 9, 1924, "E.O." went "south" to
pick up an A.B. from Randolph Macon Women's College and a "Shugary"
accent. Fully renouncing the North's frigid charms she currently calls
Coral Gables, Florida, home base. However, to completely confuse the
issue "E.O." married Larry Demarest from up-state New York, a confirmed
ice and snowman during the summer of 1947 in Coral Gables. They split
their honeymoon "North and South". Besides darning Larry's socks "E.O."
has been busy as a lab-technician at Maryland General Hospital and an
extern at West Baltimore General Hospital, After an internship at the
University Hospital Mrs. "D." intends to study pediatrics and psychiatry
from the hospital view point before taking time out to raise a family — and
then return to active practice.
On June 18, 1923 there was a flurry of excitement in the Demarest
home in South Orange, New Jersey which turned out to be Lorry. In 1945
he graduated from Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine, where he was o
Zeto Psi, with o B.S. degree. Commanding LCS 95 under Navy Auspices,
Lorry hit the Philippine and Okinawan beaches while the atmospheric lead
titre was slightly high and then went on to do occupation duty in Japan.
At the end of the freshman year he and Elinor C. Weed decided to combine
their libraries with benifit of clergy. A junior intern at Church Home and
Hospital in '48 and '49, Larry will intern at the Methodist Hospital in
Brooklyn, New York and then do general practice.
On September 7, 1920, Nick arrived in the usual unencumbered fashion
in Lyndora, Pa. About the time Nick graduated from the University of
Pittsburg, fashions were rapidly changing, and before you could say, "I
don't like Khaki", he was working for his Uncle Sugar in the Alaskan
Territory. Enamored with the local flora and fauna Nick took his discharge
then for a while taught mathematics before marrying a local flora of the
fauna, Olean Wells, May 17, 1946. Last summer Nick worked on a
research problem for the U.S. Public Health Service and this year he will
head northwest again for an internship at The Good Samaritan Hospital of
Portland, Oregon and as an Internist.
"Fredmunds" first crocked his knuckles in Charleston, W. Vo., January
30, 1920. Horning his B.S. at Hampden Sydney, Fred was further broaden-
ed, premedically, by thirty-eight months of Army duty that, if nothing else,
was fantastically varied — “They sent me everywhere but bombadier's
school!". This mountoin boy's chief extracurricular fun derives from rat-
tling a “bones" occomponiment to mournful off-beat hillbilly cacophonies,
though he owns to “liking jug-music and symphonies too". After on intern-
ship at Union Memorial Hospitol, Baltimore, “Fredmunds" intends to prac-
tice in Charleston, W. Vo.
Jock bolted into Humboldt, Konsos July 16, 1922 but presently cloims
Topeko os home. "Goog" went to both Cornell University ond University
of Morylond for his pre-med ond wos oworded o B.S. from the letter. His
recent summers spent os o bocteriologist in The Stote Public Heolth Loboro-
tory ot Topeko ore o noturol sequelo of his experience with o Novol epidemio-
logic unit both ot Somor, P.I.'s; ond Shonghoi, Chino in the some role.
A member of Nu Sigmo Nu os well os on Alpho Omego Alpho, Jock held
o junior internship ot the Hospitol for Women, Boltimore, where he leorned
thot oil cordioc murmurs ore not pothologicol. He intends to intern ot
Konsos Medicol Center, Konsos City, Konsos ond eventuolly "to be o good
On June 4, 1921, the Greenstein family was delighted with the birth
of a son, George H., who loter attended The Johns Hopkins University
from which he extracted an A.B. degree in 1941. George volunteered in the
Army, and during his four yeor tour of duty served as on armored infantry
unit commander with the 4th Armored Division in the ETO, ond later as
P. W. Stockade Commander. The Major was decorated with the Purple
Heart, Bronze Star, and Combat Infantryman Badge. Home from the wars,
George returned to Baltimore and on August 11, 1946 morried Vera Ber-
kowitz. Mechanically minded George hos revolutionized the design of
ophtholmoscopic cases. George will intern at Sinai Hospitol in Baltimore.
As omen of the sophisticofed "smoothie" he was to become, "Horn"
on March 13, 1918 protested in well modulated tones his precipituous
debut into the barbaric atmosphere, that in Baltimore passes for early
spring. Twenty-two springs later, better protected from the weather, "Lon"
accepted his A. B. from Loyola of Baltimore with unshaken aplomb. "Horn"
charted his way through World War II os o U.S. Air Force Navigator
from March of 1942 till May 1946 when he entered the inactive Air Force
Reserve os Captain. A member of Alpha Omega Alpha, Horn divides his
hobby time between gardening and golf, saving for inclement weather his
proclivity for social investigation which he, by preference, conducts from
behind the protective coloration of the good brown brew in the softly reflect-
ed glare of local television screens. They'll be "calling Dr. Homberry"
at Mercy Hospital, Baltimore for the next twelve months.
Ken was born February 21, 1917 in Trenton, New Jersey. He spent
several years in laboratory work in development production, and research
in pharmaceuticals, and graduated from Upsala College in East Orange,
New Jersey with a B.S. degree in chemistry. For many years Ken has been
interested in astronomy and has ground and polished his own optics and
built several reflecting telescopes of observatory size. On November 11,
he was married to Adriana Marie Mol. They have two children, Cloudia
Lorraine, 4, Kenneth Robert, 214, and they expect another addition to the
family at graduation time. Ken served in the U.S. Army for 40 months.
He expects to intern in Mountainside Hospital in Montclair, New Jersey.
Way back in 1914, October 13 to be exact, Phil was born in South
Bend, Indiana. At the University of Michigan he studied chemistry, was
made a life member of Scabbard and Blade, and graduated with a B.S.
During his five and a half years in the Army, Phil was operations officer
of the 96th Chemical while in the E.T.O., and stateside was a training
instructor, leaving the service as a Lt. Colonel. In Aberdeen, Maryland on
April 6, 1942, he and Marguerite Longley were married. They now are
the proud tenants of a farm in Long Bar Harbor, Abingdon, Maryland where
Phil mothers a meticulously kept vegetable patch. He summers on active
duty in the Army at Edgewood Arsenal. In 1950 he will join the house
staff at Mercy Hospital. Phil aspires to get a comfortable practice under
way before arterial sclerosis levels his vigorous 6'5".
Born February 3, 1926 at- Orrville, Ohio, Gracie currently calls Mos-
sillon, Ohio home. While Groce claims outdoor sports as her first love,
her avid appetite for classical music lends cultural balance to our "beer
and skittles" society, and she has been known to lay aside a Gray's Anatomy
in favor of an evening of cymbal croshing and arias at the Lyric. Tout
ensemble, a well rounded girl, Gracie got her A.B. from the College of
Wooster, Ohio. A junior intern at Woman's Hospital, Baltimore the past
two summers, our graceful Buckeye intends to intern at Mercy Hospital,
Canton, Ohio. Her studies completed, she will return to Massillon and
its 26,644 football fans to do a general practice of medicine.
Good notured, gray thatched Irvin Gorman (Pete to us) made his
appearance in Oxford, Maryland on August 27, 1915. He attended St.
John's College, Maryland, and after completing his hundred great books,
received a B.A. degree in 1939. After kicking around the E.T.O. in the
Army Engineers, he was discharged on November 30, 1945, after 3 years
service. Liking beer and music, Pete spent his earlier summers in a bucolic
retreat on the Eastern Shore. More recently he junior interned at Easton
Memorial Hospital and Volunteers of America Hospital in Baltimore.
Pete is a member of Alpha Omega Alpha. He will cross the street next
year to join the house staff at University Hospital and then do general prac-
tice in a small community.
"Ginny" first experienced the joy of vocal expression September 2,
1918 in Boonsboro, Maryland, which she still colls home. Working her
way through the University of Maryland, she was graduated a B.S. as well
as an accomplished baby sitter in 1940, and then went on to do graduate
work at both The Johns Hopkins University and Smith College. During the
late war Ginny did bacteriological research at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
An externship at Spring Grove Hospital this summer past was in line with
her ambitions to preside over a Freudian, couch-lined, first aid station for
sprained, fractured, and otherwise shopworn libidos and superegos. She
will intern at University Hospital.
Harrief arrived in North Bergen, New Jersey on November 24, 1923
in on abbreviated ''bikini" and a lengthy bawl. More completely but cer-
tainly not as fetchingly clad, she accepted her B.A. from Wells College in
Aurora, New York. Eschewing the local Beauty Battle near by in New
Jersey, Harriet got into the "big tussel" via the WAVEs and after two
years of cajoling kilocycles into their ordained channels, left the service
a Lt. j.g. For the past two summers she has externed at Beebe Hospital,
Lewis, Delaware. Harriet has a way, even with children, and it's a safe
bet that sooner or later her natural talents will lead her to at least a
limited pediatric practice. Harriet, the "doctor most likely to be whistled
at", will be elevating pulses at Baltimore City Hospitals during her intern-
This 29 year old, well nourished, white mole, sleeping comfortably
in class was born on June 23, 1920 in Baltimore. Johnnie stuck around
home and attended Loyola College, from whence he graduated with a
B.S. degree. A pipe smoker, he enjoys writing fiction, and who knows —
maybe the class of '50 has another Oliver Wendell Holmes in its midst.
On November 15, 1942 he married Mildred Goski in Baltimore's St.
Patrick's Cathedral, and they have three deductible items. Jack Stephen, 6,
Jo Ann Marie, 3 and Micheal Adrian, 5 months. Johnnie left the Marine
Corps in 1946 after four years as a communications officer. He intends
to find a town small enough for meditation and do general practice, after
an internship at West Baltimore Hospital.
Maxwell first kicked up a flurry of excitement in the Ibsen household
on January 12, 1917 in Glen Lyon, Pennsylvania. Since then he has gather-
ed an A.B. from The Johns Hopkins University, an M.A. from the University
of Pennsylvania, and a D.Sc. from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy
and Science. He enlisted in the Army early in 1942, and after graduating
from OCS, served with the 93rd General Hospital in the ETO. After this
tour of overseas duty he returned as a clinical pathologist at Oak Ridge,
Tennessee. On December 22, 1946 he and Helen Ruth Brown were married
and they now have a son, Peter Michael, 1. Max held a junior internship
at Mercy Hospital and will intern at Santa Clara County Hospital, San
Thirty years ago in Reno when it was more of a frontier town, Roy
David Jensen was born on August 20, and he still colls Reno home. He
attended the University of Nevada and graduated o B.S. in 1941. Three
years in the infontry, Roy saw combat service on New Guinea, Moluccas,
and the Philippines before returning to the outdoor life he loves in the
Sierra Nevada Mountains. Reversing the usual Reno procedure, he and
Gloria Ann Troynor were married August 18, 1946, and there is now a
Roy David, Jr. 1 yeor old. A junior internship at Washoe Medical Center
in his home town occupied lost summer, and next year Franklin Hospital
in San Francisco will get his services. Jens will return to Reno to practice.
A year's internship at Mercy Haspital, Baltimore and a general proc-
tice in a Maryland county is Frank's object, and the sooner the better. He
was born on June 15, 1918 in Baltimore and graduated from the University
of Maryland School of Pharmacy with a B.S. degree. The war found him
in the Army; first in a Medical Training Battalion and later in the 60th
Station Hospital as Detachment Commonder. It was with this organization
that he went overseas to the Mediterranean Theater and North Africa. Three
months after his discharge he married Mary E. Leech on June 5, 1946 in
Baltimore and the union has been blessed twice with Kathleen Mary 3, and
Peggy Anne 1. Frank has sandwiched fishing and swimming between
work as a druggist and a tour of duty at Fort Meade Station Hospital.
A graduate of the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and a
veteran of two years in the University of Maryland Graduate School, Gordon
W. Kelley was born in Baltimore on October 6, 1917. In Silver Spring
in March of 1939 he married Lillian F. White of Ohio, and Janice Lucill,
now 5, occupies much of their spare time. In the Navy during the war,
Kelley was a Gunnery and Executive Officer. He was relieved from active
duty in 1946. An Alpha Chi Sigma, and Phi Delta Chi, the complete com-
muter has worked as a pharmacist during his 4 years of medical school
in addition to being a chemist in malario research and U.S. Naval explosive
research. The Navy has reserved a berth far him next year at its hospital
in St. Albans, New York.
His present jovial avoirdupois is a far cry from the three pound baby
who was born in February, 1916 in Missouri. Ellis completed his A.B.
degree at the University of Missouri in 1946 after eleven years, no small
achievement in itself. In the interim he spent five years in the Medical
Department of the Army, during which time he met Mary Elizabeth Brown
of Portland, Oregon whom he married in Baltimore in June, 1942. He
received a B.S. in Medicine from the Medical School of the University of
Missouri and joined our class in the junior year with the blessing of that
institution. A Phi Beta Pi, he was president of his sophomore class. He
will intern at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Portland, Oregon and then
do G.P. in the Pacific Northwest.
Frank Gustav Kuehn (''pronounced Keen!") sauntered on to the scene
July 11, 1925 in Baltimore and borrowed a cigarrette and a light from
a nearby obstetrician. Frank continued to saunter, and to smoke, as he
attended Johns Hopkins University. From 1943-45 Phm Second-class
"Keen" compounded the confusion for Uncle Samuel. He attended Uni-
versity of North Carolina (in the heart of tobacco land) and received his
A.B. and preclinical training there prior to joining this class in the junior
year. On November 24, 1949 Miss Elaine Hokman began pronauncing
her name "Keen", too. An Alpha Phi Kappa, Phi Beta Kappa, and Alpha
Kappa Kappa, Frank will intern at Mercy Hospital, Baltimore, and then
begin specializing in OB-GYN.
How Tim has managed fo retain his coveted bachelorhood these many
years ia a puzzle unsolved. The sudden flush seen rising in his cheeks
is but a ruse, however, for his appreciation for les femmes has a constant
but high titre. Following his birth in Frostburg, Maryland on January 7,
1921, Tim, like Topsy, "jus' grew" until he was big enough to go to college
at Western Maryland for his pre-med training. During his college tour
he was a member of R.O.T.C. which prepared him for his four and a half
years in the Army Air Corps at Middletown, Pa. and in India. Tim is a
Phi Chi. He plans a career as a good old "family doc" following an
internship at St. Vincent's Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
During the course of on even three years in the service, the Navy
attempted to moke o dentist out of Joe, but they both gave it up os a bod
job and Joe finished his war experience os on ensign on the U.S.S. H. R.
Dickson. Born on August 25, 1925 in Baltimore, he attended Sworthmore
College, and graduated from The Johns Hopkins University with an A.B.
His sole medical interest is psychiatry, and he spent his summers at Spring
Grove Hospital with the exception of a few weeks in 1949 when he married
Charlotte A. Silberstein on June 26. Joe will intern at West Baltimore
General Hospital, following this by a residency in psychiatry.
Bill whistled his way into Wilmington, Delaware on October 12, 1923
and may still occasionally be heard whistling down the barrel of a micro-
scope. After a few years of intense study at Georgia Tech and the University
of Delaware, G.W. assumed the duties of a combat infantryman with the
Army, but this occupation was terminated on Christmas Day 1944 in the
Battle of the Bulge by a bullet through his chest. Returning to France
after a few months hospitalization he served as a reporter for Stars and
Stripes. On June 4, 1949 Bill left the ranks of the unmarried when he
joined hands with petit Jeon Ruth Granger of Wilmington. A Phi Chi and
Student Council Representative, Bill externed and will intern at Delaware
General Hospital back home in Wilmington.
Prime mover of Medicos Terroe Morioe and president of the Senior
Class, Mac boosted the census of Dormont, Pennsylvania on Februory 15,
1921. Home though, says he, is where you hang your hat. He received his
B.S. at Grove City College, Pennsylvania and on February 18, 1943 he and
Norma E. Feik were married. Kevin Lawrence, 5, has since assumed
command. 46 missions os a B-17 pilot in the ETO rewarded him with a
spreading patch of alopecia. This throttle happy Nu Sigma Nu has spent
his summers as a flying medical officer with the Air Force. The immediate
future holds on internship at Allentown Hospital, Pennsylvania and after a
residency he hopes to begin removing things, either in OB-Gyn or surgery.
Although born in New York on September 20, 1925, Dottie is a
country girl at heart and now claims Dover, Delaware as her home town.
From Washington College, Chestertown, Maryland she graduated with a
B.S., and was made a member of Sigma Sigma Omicron, an honor frater-
nity. She is much interested in the piano, although whether she plays it,
listens to it, or sits on it is not known at this writing. She spent her summers
at the City Morgue and Union Memorial Hospital. The secretary of the
Senior Class will intern at St. Vincent's Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecti-
cut, and if nothing else tempts her, she feels that general practice is her meat.
Bob first saw the light of day in Bridgewater, Virginia, May 11, 1921.
In due time after living in both Pennsylvania and Maryland, he returned to
Bridgewater to attend college where he received his B.A. degree in 1943.
The army made him a good sailor, for he made many crossings on hospital
ships and transports in special service as a physical education instructor.
Proving that the Army and Navy can come to terms on at least one problem.
Bob and Joan Morton, a Navy nurse, were married in Hyattsville, Maryland
April 26, 1946. Their family now includes Robert Eugene, Jr. 3, and
Donna Joan, 1. Bob spent his summers amassing a fortune with hammer
and saw. On weekends softball was his chief occupation. After interning
at City Hospital, Baltimore, Bob will practice in some quiet town with
a good baseball diamond.

Typically late for New Years Day, Hunter arrived early on Jonuary
2, 1924 in Philadelphia. He studied business administration at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania, engineering at Mississippi State College, and pre-
med at Vanderbilt University, the latter under the added strain of Army
Regulations, giving him the distinction of attending more colleges without
ever acquiring a degree than any other member of the class. He joined the
class in the sophomore year after a summer vacation in the merchant mar-
ine wore on for twelve months. Playing it safer on subsequent summers,
he took a junior internship at University Hospital. Hunter plans to spend
next year at Reading Hospital in Reading, Pennsylvania and following
that a career in plastic surgery.
The "Senor" arrived March 7, just 25 years ago, in Naguabo, Puerto
Rico, but now calls Santurce, Puerto Rico home. Julio received his B.S.
from the University of Puerto Rico; and his way with women os o birth-
right. President of Sigma lota, the senor spent his spore time at St.
Joseph's Hospital proving that nursing con be on exciting profession and
serving o junior internship. He will return to his native land for an
internship at San Juan City Hospitol. Julio hopes eventually to become
a faculty member of the University of Puerto Rico, School of Medicine;

On February 11, 1923 in St. Louis, Missouri, on unmilitory bundle
of boy joined the O'Malley cion. However, some errant angel must hove
been bugling muted, martial airs for after attending The Citadel, University
of Virginia, and Colby College, Joe became a most complete militaryman,
being first a member of His British Majesty's Black Watch of the Royal
Highland Regiment. Continuing in o proud fighting man's tradition, Joe
then became a Gyrene and saw service for Uncle Sam in the Solomon
Islands campaigns. Laying aside his battle dress, and substituting an
organ's sonorous soothings for the sharp rattle of the quicksteps, Joe married
Norice Mahoney June 22, 1946 and they now have a 14 month old logistic
problem. Norice Clark. A Sigma Nu since his University of Virginia
days, Joe has ambitions in the field of radical surgery that will, he hopes,
be realized after his internship at St. Francis Hospital, Hartford, Connecticut
Evangeline hails from Philippi, West Virginia where she was born
on November 20, 1924. She grew up in Philippi, graduated from high
school there and attended the local college, Alderson-Broaddus. In 1945
she received an A.B. degree from West Virginia University and in 1946 an
M.A. degree in child develapment from Columbia University. On June 15,
1947 she married Glenn B. Poling, a dental student and fellow West
Virginian. Schoolwork, housework, and needlework have since occupied a
large part of her spare time. She will intern at Union Memorial Hospital
in Baltimore and eventually ga back to West Virginia and practice pedia-
trics, perhaps on the staff of the Myers Clinic, owned and operated by
The sole contribution of Biglerville, Pennsylvania to the class comes
in the form of Bill Rever, who was born on July 19, 1923. He attended
Cornell and the University of Maryland. Bill is one of the salt water
specialists of the class, having spent almost 4 years in the Navy, part of
the time as skipper of an L.C.T. in the Pacific and the remainder on a mine
sweeper. In the Navy Chapel at Norfolk, he and Mary Frances La Bar
were married on February 25, 1946. Bill's summers have been consumed as
a foreman for the B. and O. and externing at Mercy Hospital. He is
a member of Nu Sigma Nu and is chairman of their social committee. He
has Bard-Parker fever, and hopes one day to become a surgeon after in-
terning at Mercy Hospital, Baltimore.
“Paul ^%edenic^ ^ccAciftcC^^
Th is enterprising slave of Morpheus entered this competitive society
on January 12, 1922. He has since resurrected many o junk heap to a
serviceable automobile for resale. One wonders if his shingle will read
''Paul F. Richardson, M.D. Used Car Dealer". Paul's pre-med training wos
gleaned from Baylor University, Waco, Texas and punctuated by 4 yeors
duty with the Army Medical Department. His ambulance anecdotes ore a
constant source of amusement. On May 24, 1942 in Baltimore he and Naomi
Marguerite Otto were morried and their household is now ruled by Jan
Karen, 5. Paul will intern ot Mercy Hospital in Boltimore and plans to do
general practice thereafter.
From Rochester, New York comes Virginia Marie Gould, who was
born there on November 16, 1921. She graduated from Nazareth College
with a B.S. in chemistry and then went to the Navy for two years as a
Lt. in the WAVE. She paints in oils and very shortly we expect to see her
work in Parergon. Comely Ginny enjoys horseracing but has been unable
to improve the breed appreciably because of a shortage of funds while in
medical school in spite of the expert touting available. Junior internship
at St. Mary's Hospital and Spring Grove occupied her summers and next
year she will intern at the Crawford W. Long Hospitol in Atlanta, Georgia,
as Dr. Virginia Gould Reynaud. Ginny ond "Looey" were morried this
Easter vacation, April 10, 1950.
Mercurial “Looey" first "showed" in New Orleans, Louisiana, July
19, 1924. Proof of his cosmopolitan nature can be had, if needed, from
the fact that this Emory University alumnus claims both Atlonta and
Chicago as his present home town. A seasoned philotelist, this Sigma Chi's
chief interest outside of medicine is "four legged animals". He hos spent
considerable time and pay trying to "improve the breed" and in off seosons
a well turned "shank's mare" is most apt to get a rise out of him. Al-
though a confirmed turf man he spent four years in the Navy prior to med
school. After graduation he intends to "return to the deep south" for an
internship at the Crawford W. Long Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Ga.,
Bud made his first "cair' on March 2, 1920, in San Francisco, Calif.
Fired by his success in breeding o prize herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle
during his High School days. Bud now is interested in "stock", but of the
coupon clipping variety. After o few years at the University of California
he took up with the Navy and attended the University of the Air at Corpus
Christi. Bud served in the Pacific as a pilot in the original "Dumbo" Res-
cue Squadron, fishing many a shot-down fly-boy out of the drink under in-
tense enemy fire. Completing these duties Bud returned to the States as
an Instrument and Navigation instructor,. Lt. Commander Righetti and
Gloria Campana, also a Californion, were married in Beaufort, S.C. on
Easter Sunday, April 1, 1945, and they are awaiting the arrival of o new
little Righetti. Bud is a Nu Sigma Nu. He will intern at Permanente
Haspitals in Oakland, Califarnia.
The Mesmerian ait wos not very evident in Ralph's personality that
November 30, 1921 when Cumberland heard his first wail, but his studies
at Maryland State Teachers College and the University of Moryland soon
exposed that power of oral anesthesia which may replace saddle block in
his future OB practice. During the recent war Ralph served as a Navy
pilot until he buzzed his way out of the Navy and into the Army as a
Personnel Consultant and Company Commander at Percy Jones General
Hospital. On June 2, 1943 he and Virginia Lee McBride were married
in Cumberland and they have added Sheila Diane, 4, to the Roth census.
A Nu Sigmo Nu, Ralph returned to the Army lost summer os o medical
officer at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania and subsequently junior interned
at the Relay Sanitorium. He will intern ot Mercy Hospital, Baltimore.
Sam, son of Baltimore's Poet Laureate, arrived a noisy bundle of free
verse on March 29, twenty-six years ago in the Monumental City. Writing
as little blank verse as possible, Sam graduated from the Johns Hopkins
University with an A.B. degree. Spending two and a half years in the
Army, he saw service in the ETO as an infantryman. To our culture ridden
class, he contributes with proper eclat such interests as beer and pretzels,
although he does admit liking long hair music. The historian of Phi Delta
Epsilon, Sam enlivens his summers by playing tennis, swimming, and
travelling through New England and Canada. More recently he was a
junior intern at West Baltimore General Hospital. Next year he will in-
tern at the Sinai Hospital, Baltimore. His future plans are not known.
A Californian in the way he talks, dresses, and drives (Maryland
traffic tickets notwithstanding), Herman was born in Fresno on May 17,
1926. He collected his pre-medical education from Fresno State College
before venturing East. He spends his summers either in California or in
cruising off to Howaii. Rudy is a Sigma Tau and Nu Sigma Nu. He
spent last summer as a junior intern at the Santa Monica Hospital
in California, and will return to the Sunshine State to join the house stuff
of the Hospital of the Good Samaritan. Herman is not sure of what
he eventually wants to do, but he does wont to do it in Californio.
Robert bobbed into Baltimore on June 19, 1921. A Bochelor of
Science of the University of Maryland circa 1943, Bob spent two years
of thirty six months of duty with the Army Medical Department in the
European Theatre as a Staff Sgt. On August 18, 1946 in Baltimore, he
forsook the benedict's gay life in company with Joline Kaplan, who pre-
sented him with a son, Laurence David on September 17, 1949. A Phi
Delta Epsilon, Bob has proved himself a serious student who is not, in
season, above kicking up his heels with enthusiastic abandon. After com-
pletion of his training at Sinai Hospital, Baltimore, he intends to do o
general practice while maintaining his interest in obstetrical pediatrics
Shep put in his bid for longerity on June 4, 1913 in Grontwood, New
Jersey but now colls Baltimore home. Armed with on A.B. from Syracuse
University '35, membership in Kappa Sigma and Scabbard and Blade,
Fred set out to make his mark on the world. The Army interfered, however,
ond he found himself conducting a self-propelled anti-aircraft unit in the
2nd Armored Division on the Normandy to Berlin run. In Queenstown,
Maryland on September 6, 1941 he and Ruth Merritt Leonard were married
and they now point with pride to their firstborn, Laura, 4 big months old.
Lt. Shepherd has spent his summers on active duty with the Reserve. . Dur-
ing the senior year Shep distinguished himself by contracting chickenpox
via the Robinson Circus. After an internship at U.S. Marine Hospital,
Baltimore, he will trek to the hinterland to do general practice.
Twenty nine years ago on April 17 a weary stork, tired of fighting
headwinds and the incessant criticism of his red-nosed passenger, dropped
Fred off in Baltimore. Still with o fine nose for the right destination,
Fred served os o Bombardier with the 15th. Air Force in Itoly until fate
intervened and plunked him into the lop of Russian hospitolity for o few
weeks. After separation he returned to Loyola of Baltimore to garner his
B.S. A member of Alpha Omege Alpha, on extern at West Baltimore
General Hospital this post summer, Fred, this year presided over the Mercy
Hospital Blood Bonk. Despite his experiences with things airborne, Fred,
occording to the Flight Plon filed with us, will intern under Air Force
auspices at Wolter Reed en route to his surgical boords.
This dashing red haired bachelor was born on April 3, 1922 in
Frostburg, Marylond, and later attended Western Maryland College where
after four yeors of intensiye coeducation, he secured a B.A. degree. Three
years in the Army Medical Corps failed to dissuade him and he came to
medical school the same year he was discharged. An outdoor enthusiast,
he finds time for some comping, fishing, and tennis even though he hos
been externing at Franklin Square Hospitol for the post two years.
Bill will join the Moryland contingent to St. Vincent's Hospital in Bridge-
port, Connecticut next year where he will continue his efforts ond after
thot things are open to speculation.
Scarf, as he was so endearingly called by Bucky Freedom, was deliver-
ed from LOA on October 24, 1923 in Columbus, Ohio. Migrating East,
Al entered Western Maryland College for his pre-med education. Liking
his birthdate, he married Ellen Hope Hess on October 24, 1942 and the
union has been blessed with Mary Carol, 6, and Linda Diane, 2. Scarf
spent 3 years in the Army, mostly with the 6th Amphibious Engineers in
the campaign of New Guinea, the Bismark Archipellago, the liberation of
the southern Phillipines and Luzon. The gray Ford with the Nu Sigma Nu
ensign in the window carries Al to and from Taneytown, Maryland and the
little family these last months of the "grind". Al will join the delegation to
St. Vincent's Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut for his internship.
Mori joined the Smith's legions on July 14, 1922 in Baltimore, Mary-
land after nine months of careful deliberation. Learning to make more
hasty but none the less prudent decisions Mort graduated from the Univer-
sity of Maryland an outstanding B.S. Among the scholastic elite he is
an Alpha Omega Alpha by virtue of his consistent high class standing.
Mort who is also a Phi Delta Epsilon considers chess an ideal relaxani
for the "little grey cells". An amateur mathematitian, Mort occasionally
risks a "jit" in the interest of applied physics and the calculation of
probabilities on local pinball mazes. He will continue, too, to be linked
with the common clog by his "motion studies" of hospitals while interning
at Michael Reese Hospital, Chicago, Illinois.
On February 2, 1925 there arriyed in the Sosnowski household a
screaming, squirming conglomeration of cells. This apparition wos for
some unknown reason nicknamed Hank. After a few mitoses and a battle
with Dr. Potts disease. Hank sped through Southern High, snatched a B.S.
from Loyola of Baltimore, took graduate work in chemistry at Notre Dame,
entered Medical school, and married Muriel Doris Hatfield. All this in
such a short time as to make your head spin. We will never forget the
beer party he almost singlehandedly sponsored one night back in 1947.
The Curtis Bay Polish home won't forget us either. We were given the
pleasure of participating in a real Polish wedding and reception on July
11, 1948 when Hank and Muriel were married out there in Curtis Bay —
what o day, eh Hank? The Stump will intern at St. Agnes Hospital in
^cufmo4tcC Sft^udcCut^, f/^%.
"My name is Spaulding. No doubt you have . . . This was perhaps
our first meeting with big exhuberent Ray back there in September '46.
And we won't forget that dance when he sang so lustily, "I wish I was in Dix-
ie, Bless her heart!" A Floridan since his first gasp on 5 August, 1921,
Ray stayed hatless through John B. Stetson University in DeLand and a
B.S. The Navy covered his shining hair, though, and for 3 years he
cruised about, visiting the Normandy beachhead one D Day in 1944. Lt.
Spaulding and Frances Eloine Fretwell, of Jacksonville, Florida, were
married 6 February, 1944 and they now have their own private little
pediatric problem in R.C. Ill, 1 year. Ray will intern across the street
at University Hospital and hopes in the future to toke up the knife.
Henry, who now resides in Hagerstown, Maryland, was born in Balti-
more on August 28, 1925. He acquitted himself well with the 8th Army
in Yokohama, at Loyola College, and the University of Maryland.. During
this time he developed a taste for photography. A Nu Sigma Nu, he
proved that he can look at the negative side of things when he spent the
last two summers in the X-ray department of the Washington County Hos-
pital in Hagerstown where he was also exposed to the charms of Peggy
Ann Thumma. They are to be married on June 3rd this year and after
a short honeymoon he will begin an internship in the Baltimore City Hospital.
Henry, in keeping with his interest in the graphic arts, ultimately hopes to
become a radiologist.
Betty, whom we left on poge 19 packing sports coots, first bounced her
bustle July 9, 1925 in Frederick, Md. After attending Northfield Seminary
she went on to Sworthmore College and an A.B. degree. Slipping un-
obtrusively into the back of Anatomical Hall, Betty joined our ranks in
the fall of 1946. Those who got close enough to know her, sing praise
for her elfin humor and dry tart wit; the rest of us know her as a gracious,
quiet girl who seemed less afraid than most of us of "UhlyV' bluster and
who when the shouting^^s over this June will marry Harlan Bleecker, M.D.
When asked her future plans, our bride to be says with a wicked grin,
Casimir pulled out by a nose on September 24, 1923 in Chicago, but
since that time his win, place, and show fortunes have floundered con-
siderably, and even the professional advice he acquired as an intern in the
Maryland State Penitentiary did not alter the fourth, fifth, and sixth run-
ning tendencies of his selections. In the blustry Chicago tradition, Mike
went west to Dubuque, Iowa, and gathered a pre-medical education at Laras
College, before spending some 23 months in the SW Pacific and the CBI
theatre, which became of value when he was able to confirm Dr. Hull's
brilliant observations of Calcutta. Still pleasingly unmarried, Mike will
gladen the nursing staff of St. Lukes' Hospital in Chicago beginning in July.
The son of a prominent physician, Thib was born on September 4,
1923 in Washington, D.C. He acquired a B.S. degree from the University
of Maryland in 1945 and followed this with a year in graduate school
as an instructor in zoology. Thib relieved the frustrations of medical school
by playing the pipe organ. A job at the Maryland State Penitentiary during
the junior year precipitated his interest in penology and criminal psychia-
try. A Phi Chi he summered clerking in a drug store, learning of the
sex life of the oyster at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, and
vacationing at the Buxton Clinic in Newport News. He was president of the
class his junior year. Providence Hospital in Washington will get his
services after graduation.
On December 6, 1917 a cherubic bontling was born to the Thompsons
in Rock Hall, Maryland. They named him Bill, hoped he would be presi-
dent some day, and sent him to Washington College for a B.S. dated 1938.
In 1941 Bill donned khaki with the signal corps and later piloted Fortresses
in the 8th Air Force flying 25 missions. He was decorated with DFC and
Air Medal with 3 oak leaf clusters. On July 17, 1945, he and Jacquelyn
May Risley of Great Falls, Montano were married and now William Randall,
4, flies co-pilot for Bill. While in med school Bill has flown for the
Air National Guard and this past summer served as a flying medical officer
in the Air Force. Bill will intern at Milwaukee County Hospital, Wisconsin.
Bate drawled into Winston-Salem, North Carolina on July 7, 1918.
He received part of his education at the Woodberry Forest School in
Virginia and then returned south to the University of North Carolina where
he secured o B.S. In the Navy for the duration, he participated in the
amphibious operations in Africa, Sicily, Salerno, Saipan, Angauer, Leyte,
Lingauyen Gulf, and Iwo Jima as Deck, gunnery, and navigotion officer
before he was released to inactive duty as a Lt. Commander in 1946. On
September 7 of the same yeor he and Margaret Spencer Shackleford were
married in Martinsville, Virginia and B.C.T. Ill joined them early this year.
Bate, a Phi Chi, entered our class the junior year as a transfer from
the University of North Carolina. He will intern at Union Memorial Hos-
pital in Baltimore and will eventually do general surgery.
Al made his appearance on October 29, 1921 in Oakland, California
He majored in bacteriology at the University of California, and in 1942
graduated with an A.B. degree. During the recent war he gave his service
to the medical department at Camp Barkely, Texas, Camp Atterbury, In-
diano, and in Manila, P.l. and emerged a Captain, MAC. He is a member
of Nu Sigma Nu and Alpha Omega Alpha. During the Sophomore year
he was class president. He took the nuptial vows with Ruth June Sanden
on September 4, 1943 and there is now a little Upton, David Albert, 1 year.
Uppie will serve his internship in the Letterman General Hospitol in San
Francisco. He plans to specialize in internal medicine and practice in
From the Garden State, Neal was born in Paterson on September 15,
1922. Van received a B.S. degree from Calvin College in Grand Rapids
where he also met and married Madeline Koster on June 27, 1947. The
war found Gooch wallowing in the mud in the ETO, and after getting
through the Battle of the Bulge unscathed, the Army saw fit to turn his
piano playing talents loose on the civilian population of Norway. He was
quietly discharged one pleasant spring day in his native New Jersey after
32 months service. Last summer he externed in the Paterson General
Hospital, and next year will serve an internship at Iowa State University &
Hospital in Iowa City. Following this he will do general practice in
Grand Rapids, New Jersey.
"Qoco” dribbled into center court for the first time on September
3, 1926 in Cioles, Puerto Rico. Undertaking his premedicoi studies at
The University of Puerto Rico he parlayed a pair of dancing feet and
a sharp eye into a basketball excellence which has strengthened the attack
of the Ponce Lions Basketball Club during his summer vacations; and a
smoothly functioning "Latin" technique with the women that has yet to foil
him at home or away as far as we know. Coco served as a junior intern
at St. Joseph's Hospital in his Senior year. After a senior internship,
spent fluttering nurses' pulses, at Clinica Pila, Ponce, Puerto Rico this
Latin Lothario expects to serve the citizens of Ciales as a general prac-
titioner or a pediatrician. Quien sabe?
Fowler F. was born in the Lone Star State's Wichita Falls on March
8, 1920. A year at the University of Maryland and 3 years at Trinity
College majoring in philosophy and economics landed him a B.S. in 1942,
and then to round out his education he took his pre-med at Yale. Of 37
months in the Navy he spent 11 months in the South Pacific piloting dive
bombers and fighters. Although he claims that his combat experience was
"innocuous", he is still struggling with his service incurred ulcer symptoms.
While still in the Navy, he married Irene Anne Generous in Jacksonville,
Florida July 1943. Two ripples in the serenity of their married life
developed during medical school days: Ralph Robert, 2, and Bruce Law-
rence, 1. Fowler spent last summer in cardiovascular research at Balti-
more City Hospital. He will intern at Mercy Hospital, Baltimare.
"Sparks" was unanimously declared perennial president of the Slide
Projector Operators Union, which office he has ably filled between naps
behind ye magic lantern. A dyed-in-the-wool New Englander, Cliff was

leave the frozen hills, he matriculated at Bowdoin College in Maine for
his pre-med. The war found Cliff in the Navy Air Corps serving as a
pilot of carrier based aircraft in the Pacific. He is a member of Kappa
Sigma, and the Connecticut Medical Society. On June 21, 1947 he and
Helen Louise Gilbert, another New Englander, were married. The Wm.
W. Backus Hospital in Connecticut used his services during the past two
summers and he will intern at Waterbury Hospital, again in Connecticut.
Gelsenkirchen was once a preHy little town in Western Germany, and
it was there that Ernie entered the folds of the Wolf family on February

the emigration of the Wolf family to our foir land and the presence of
this very personable guy in our class. During the war Ernie served os a
medical technician in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and is reputed to be
a handy man with the counting chamber. He received his pre-med at The
Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland School of Phar-
macy. A member of Phi Delta Epsilon, he has been vice consul and

In the enlightened year of 1946 there were
no dissection riots, but none-the-less there was

White coated, dedicated, intense, we invaded
the innermost privacies of those discarded tem-
ples of humanity. Day by weary, stench-increas-
ing day we progressed from alcolyte to novice,
to intime in the labyrinthine maze of fact and
fascial fancy of which Anatomy consists.
"You must keep the wrappings wet!" "No!
No! a butcher is more gentle" "Und now, I
will draw a little sketch." "What are the re-
lationships of . . . ?" "Name the branches of
. . . !" "Where does the . . . muscle originate?
Where insert?" The exhortations, the damnings,
the infrequent, treasured praise, the questions,
all became a litany-like background for the work
of dissection. Then gradually the answers came
more readily and Drs. Uhlenhuth, and Figge,
and Smith smiled more frequently, and even
allowed upon occasion that we were learning
"a little anatomy", and deserving of the "high
privilege of human dissection"!

This department, now presided over by the same Dr. Figge wha aided
and abetted our assault on gross anatomy, was in the days of our pristine
glory as Medical Frosh presided over by Dr. ''Ducky" Davis and his able
assistants. Dr. '^Honest" John Lutz and Professor "Ree Bob!" Harne. With
the aid of an endless supply of slides and a limitless fund of patience
and good humor, this hardworking trio gave us the much needed insight
into the origins and the microscopic anatomy of our future patients. "We
study the normal that we may know the abnormal" was the keynote of the
good Dr.'s labors with us.
In fancy, in models, in slides in a dark sleep producing room projected,
we followed the ova and sperm to blastomere; we followed the blastomere
to ectoderm and endoderm and mesoderm; we followed the "derms" to
kidneys and hearts and fingernails and such. Over and over we retraced
the evolving and diversifying pattern of human growth, our eyes glued
to a microscope's eyepiece; our ears tuned to "Ducky's" informative quaver.
We'll always remember Dr. Davis' haunting
cry, "Now, gentlemen!" The Sciatic, Dr. Phelan?

Correlated for the first time with Neuro Physiology, which was newly
inserted in the frosh schedule, neuroanatomy introduced us to the intricacies
of the central nervous system. Dr. Davis' bold and forthright exposures,
effected by the seemingly casual flick of his canny thumb, never failed
to amaze us, and nearly always defied imitation. However, "Ducky" and
his two assistants. Prof. Home and Dr. Lutz, soon had us so thoroughly
indoctrinated that we skipped in and out of the bewildering arrangement
of nuclei, fasiculi, and radiations with something approaching assurance
in the dissection of the human brain.

Sugar 5822! Dr. Emil C. Schmidt racked
his chalk and strode out amid the rumble of
appreciative laughter as he capped his lecture
with a punch line memoric for the qualitative
identification of sugar in the urine. So it was,
what with one stratagem or another and a modi-
cum of hard work and midnight oil, that Dr.
Wylie (who then doubled in brass as professor
of Biochemistry) and his staff taught us the
For many of us ''gel'" was merely a collo-
quialism for quail until we had heard out the
Dean on colloid chemistry as applied 'to the
human body's physiology. Other of our notions
were equally quaint no doubt, but we gradually
learned the origin, function, and union number
of all the enzymes and hormones from os to
anus. This converted our heretofore relatively
simple ideas of a gut composed of mucosa,
submucosa, muscularis, and serosa into the
concept of the gut as a chemical cartel whose
interlocking subsidiaries worked night and day
to confound freshmen medical students and
incidentally do some secreting, excreting, and
just plain eating.
We delved into the stucty of respiration and
immediately this simple matter of sucking in
air and blowing it out again became a complex
system of pH's, 0., tensions, buffer pairs, par-
tial pressures, the electrochemical affinity of
oxygen for acid as compared to basic elements
and respiratory enzymes. Somehow we managed
to go on breathing, though some of us got
slightly blue in the face at times.
We balanced the equation . . . .

The man who designed such chaste simplicity as Vit A,B,C, etc. as a
front for those interminable carbon chain formulae could probably simplify
bureaucratic Washington's hydra-headed personnel roster without lopping
off a single head. At any rate, organic formulae take some fancy me-
morizing no matter what they are called.
There were of course extensive sojourns in the laboratory associated
with the aforementioned theoretical considerations. There, hopelessly en-
tangled in bunsen burners, test tube racks, water baths, and ring stands

Physiology as we recall it is a completely
frustrating admixture of sooted drums that
wouldn't stay sooted, and white coats that always
were; compounded with scholarly and completely
unfrustrated lectures by the gentlemanly Dr.

Smith, the quiet spoken Dr. Oster, and the acid
However, in retrospect, it is the high adven-
ture of the laboratory we will recall most
vividly; where due to the perversity of things
animate and inanimate we spent those long
heartbreaking afternoons smoking millions of
miles of glazed paper, to preserve, if fortune
smiled, an inch or two of "representative rec-
ord" in the shel lac'd soot; where using each
other for subjects we became familiar with in-
tricately interlocked behavior of respiration,
circulation, and metabolism; where day by day
we exposed the functioning of that wondrous
sentient machine, the human body.

in their purity; the afternoons spent differen-

and laboratory the erudite professor and his
capable corps of assistants made comprehensible
to us as sophomores the rationale of what had
heretofore been only the heiroglyphics of a
doctor's traditionally illegible prescription.
But Dr. Krantz did more than teach us
properly to prescribe. He fired our imagina-
tions and breathed life into Gtt's, iii, tid, p.c.,
by sagely interlarding the magic of history and
the personalities of those sacred greats of an-

HUGH R. SPENCER, M.D.
Professor of Pathology
Head of the Department
General pathology in the sophomore year is
a confused state of mind, complicated by rapid-
fire lectures and two hundred odd slides repre-
senting the diabolical variations of the Dali-
esque world of human disease seen through the
low power field. The whole thing was patently
impossible! That was our single certainty as
we faced the task of preparing a hundred odd
sketches for Dr. Robert Wright's dour 'approval
and ourselves for the final practical.
Having learned to differentiate early and
late Hodgkin's, and phrase our complete cer-
tainty in chaste and guarded technical language
amenable to complete reversal of interpretation
should we blunder once more, we entered the
third year course in gross pathology. In the
jar-lined cubicles of the Pathology Museum we
peered at monsters and felt a measure of success
when we could differentiate a consolidated lung
from a normal liver.

The responsibility for our successful completion of the course must
be shouldered, whatever their feelings in the matter, by: Dr. Spencer, whose
deliberate, lucid presentations placed the rock of reason in the shifting
sands of bewilderment; Dr. Reimann, whose breezy, fast-spoken simplifica-
tions added spice to the course and shed no little light on the subject;
Dr. Wagner, The Elaborate Efucidator; Dr. Wright, who steadfastly insisted
upon our being 100 per cent right; Dr. Warner's capsule reviews punctuated
by the conga rhythms of the BCH steam pipes; and a host of others too
numerous to give individual mention in this limited space, but all of them
fully guilty of having done their unstinted "damndest" to teach us pathology.
To say this, and nothing more of an experience in pathology is like
saying "the earth is a sphere, period."
In the senior year, in the CPC's, we came to appreciate pathology
further — as the harsh, honest light of after thought and reason revealing
our mistakes and underlining our limitations, pathology becomes the nagging
voice of scientific conscience that will make of all of us better, more

Head of Clinical Pathology
Remember how bled out and anemic looking
everyone became as the deadline for coverslip-
pulled smears closed in on us; and how willing
someone else always was to stick you? Sure
you do, that was in Clinical Pathology, Dr.
Milton Sack's course. Y'know — the one where
the only typical slides you saw all year were
in the final practical? And all the exam ques-
tions were easy? Who's got their tongue in
their cheek? Not me — that's bubble gum. I'm
talking about that course where you become a
hematologist, a urinologist, a fecologist, and
a parisitologist. You must recall it — the one
where you learn to balance water? The lab
where, if you change eyes carelessly, you're
looking down your neighbor's microscope, and
if you reach for that "clean ironed cotton hand-
kerchief" too fast you pick your buddy's pocket
over in the other aisle. Come now, the place
where Rh isn't Rita Hayworth's old initials and
everybody's still excited about it? You "remem-
bered all the time"? "How could you forget?"
I dunno, I often wondered about that myself,
but it was a darn good course anyway.
Did you say atypical. Miss Hellen?
The course in psychiatry at the University
of Maryland is entering its renaissance, with
Dr. Jacob Finesinger as Michelangelo. His task
is most formidable, for he seeks not only to
work in the brick and mortar from which will
rise a psychiatric hospital, but also to shape
the attitudes of students and faculty in order
to develop a wider and more accurate under-
standing of the role of the physician. Besides
the unfolding of the "doctor-patient relation-
ship", a teacher-student relationship has been
established that might well be emulated.
In this endeavor he will find many disciples.
One has already emerged in the person of Dr.
Lisansky, who serves to bridge the fast-narrow-
ing gap between Medicine and Psychiatry. We
of the senior class have watched his development
in this new medium from his first timid attempts
to his now confident "Ah yes, and how does
that make you feel?"
Of our psychiatric courses in the first three
years, suffice it to say that with a very few
notable exceptions, they were largely uncon-
Today the graduate who sees only the lesion
and not the patient is a rarity, and even he is
beset by doubt, for it is becoming increasingly
apparent that the path of such an individual
leads but to Pathology.
To a few of us psychiatry will be a life-work;
to all of us it will remain, consciously or not,
a part of our work and of our lives. For with
our new-found approach the patient who was
formerly "a crock" has become an invigorating
challenge, and the 'Practice of Medicine once
more assumes the mantle of Humanity.

The first opportunity we hod to become
acquainted with the Department of 'Medicine
and the Department of Medicine with us, 9c-
curred in the first semester of our sophomore
year when we were taught the art of medical
history taking. Dr. Wolff, in his quiet way,
emphasized from the very beginning the value
of becoming a thorough physician. We learned,
among other things, that negative as well as
positive findings must be included in a good
medical history. With the weapons 'obtained
during the semester, i.e. our "little green book
and stethoscope", we trouped into the second
semester of our sophomore class. At last we
were to learn the fundamentals of inspection,
palpation, percussion, and ausculation. Now
this, we felt, was the real art of medicine. Our
subjects — ourselves. We were putting into prac-
tice the knowledge gained from lectures by Drs.
Wolff and Reiter. We graduated from exam-
inations of questionably normal fellow class-
mates to our first contact with patients.

CBC, PSP, BP, qd. "never had a sick day"
Up to this point we felt that we weren't worth
a used finger cot — we soon changed. The class
was divided into small groups under different
instructors, who took us to various hospitals
throughout the city. At first the examination
of real patients frightened us — this too soon
changed. In addition to our practical work we
were introduced to Cordon Wilson Hall where
we developed muscle cramps and low back pain
while attending the weekly medical clinics on
some of the more common conditions such as
Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia.
In the third year the Department of Medicine
was constantly with us. Our lecture course be-
gan with talks on diseases of the cardio-vascular
system by Drs. Love, Leach, and Scherlis. We
were then exposed to the kidney diseases by
Dr. Sacks, including the newer concepts in
lower nephron nephroses; the respiratory di-
seases by Drs. Fort, Langeluttig, Jacobson,
Bryson, Serra, and Hartz; allergic diseases by
Dr. Bu'bert; gastro-intestinal diseases by Drs.

Morrison, Dickey, Freeman, and Dehoff; met-
abolic diseases by Drs. Carey, Eastland, and
Acton; also lectures on arthritis by Dr. Lisansky.
It can be seen that in addition to becoming
acquainted with the majority of diseases we
also met most of the members of the Medicine
Department staff. A weekly medical clinic de-
signed to coincide with the daily lecture, material
was held throughout the year. We received
further training in physical diagnosis at various
hospitals throughout the city, where there was
available a wealth of clinical material. The
emphasis was on cardio-vascular and respiratory
diseases. Despite double masking and extra-
long stethoscope tubing we all stood in fear
of the red bug that bores holes in people's lungs.
Five busy weeks were spent in the Medical Dis-
pensary. Here we took histories and performed
physical examinations on the new patients, ex-
amined urines ad infinitum, recorded negative
findings ad nauseaum, missed lunch, and ar-
rived late for ensuing classes. We learned that

to combine speed and accuracy, and that water-
melon seed tea is good for urinary retention.
All in all we felt ourselves fairly well grounded
in Medicine; that is until Weil's disease came
up on the final.
Medicine in the fourth year was a different
matter. Under the new program we spent four
weeks at University Hospital and another four
at Mercy Hospital where we were exposed to
the charms of the feminine side of medicine
and learned the routine of hospital procedure.
On each of our assigned patients (the privilege
of the house staff) we did histories, physicals,
CBC's, urines, and stools, and it was our re-
sponsibility to follow their therapy and course
and present them on ward rounds. Although we
were given a few lectures, emphasis was placed

upon the practical side of medicine and to further the illusion we were
permitted (at University Hospital) to spend every fifth night in a well
appointed room on the third floor, next to the colored male toilet (neither
door is well marked which occasionally resulted in confusion). During these
tours of night duty we were assigned new patients that we might follow a
case from its insipency. A few of us even became experienced in following
a bleeding ulcer with blood pressures every half hour and hemoglobin
determinations q3h. But then in the morning there was always a hot
breakfast and the relief of adding our advice or grievances to the bulletin
board in the little cu'bicle on the first floor. At both University Hospital
and Mercy, we peopled the medical specialty clinics, correcting diagnoses

of gratitude to the house staffs of both Mercy

rison for his conferences in gastroenterology;
to Dr. Marriott for his enlightenment on EKC,
and the many other pearls he cast before us;
and to many visiting men who gave so freely
of their time and effort that we might sharpen
our diagnostic and therapeutic acumen.

stringing them along.
The University Section slaved — at least they

Deep, drawling incantations on the barber

Dr. Thurston P. Adams, more affectionately
known as 'Turk" among confreres and disciples,
was our patient and laconic guide into the
mystic realm of basic principles. It was in the
third and fourth years that Turk revelled in
his glory. Here in bedside clinical sessions and
in the operating room clinics he added many
a pearl to our string.
Another phase of sophomore surgery was
conducted by Dr. Otto Brantigan and his staff
in Surgical Anatomy. In many hours spent in
lectures and at gross dissections in the anatomy
lab they bridged the gap between anatomy in
the abstract and clinical anatomy as applied
to the study and practice of medicine and
As Junior students we faced with awe and
consternation the ponderous volume of Christo-
pher and the multitudes of verbage associated
with surgery. Dr. Harry Hull's morning lec-
tures, however, always seemed to lighten the
burden by extricating from the haystack the
salient and practical points and leaving behind
the minutiae to be argued by the theoreticians.
Dr. Haase demonstrates the sinus flush for
Jensen and Yeager. Dr. Howard Mays leans on diagnostic finger.
"There ain't no such thing as a sprain until
you've gotten an X-ray." "There ain't no
definite signs and symptoms of appendicitis."
The grammar may not have been correct, but
indelible impressions were left on the uninitiated
minds. "The treatment of mechanical obstruc-
tion consists of decompression, hydration, and
operation." Thus in three words we had what
others took volumes to say. Questions fired at
his students were not of the "guess what I'm
thinking" variety, but dealt with the every-
day commonplace phenomena — not the "wierd
beards" as he so aptly phrased it. Cryptic,
laconic "Hullisms", those expressions of prac-
tical surgical value were as much a mark of
the man as his fisherman's chapeau, the butt
of many a student quip.
Under the guidance of the OPD staffs at both
University and Mercy Hospitals, Junior students
incised and drained furuncles, applied casts to
broken limbs, excised in-grown toenails and
cleaned and dressed leg ulcers. The assistance
of a more experienced nurse was frequently
invoked when a patient's bandage degenerated
before the student's embarrassed gaze.
On the sixth floor of the Bressler Building
small groups of Juniors were initiated into the
hallowed routine of the surgical "scrub" and

As Seniors we divided the two months of surgery between University
and Mercy. Formal, didactic lectures were few, being replaced by in-
formal seminars with small groups in which everyone participated actively,
and where the patient was examined and questioned before the group.

for surviving the three preceding harrowing years (at least we could say
"good-morning" to the doorman). We were assigned patients on the wards
on whom we took histories, did physicals, watched the operations and
observed the post-operative care and treatment. Urine exams and CBC's
became miserable G.G. nightmares, but even the grimmest moments of stupor
and despair were raised to pleasureable heights as we engaged in enjoyable

pastimes with amiable ward nurses. But it was during our tours of duty
in the Accident Room that we learned what a busy G.P/s office must be
like. Here we assisted in diagnosing and treating everything from lacerated
fingers to spontaneous abortions. The Wednesday morning CPC's were
highlights of wisdom and entertainment where the surgeons pitted their
clinical wits against the coldly factual pathologists, both at times being
perturbed by embarrassing student queries.
Dr. Charles Bagley bestowed upon each Junior a collection of type-
written sheets with instructions that all information therein was to be
committed to our overburdened memory. The first exam was universally
flunked, but shortly thereafter we convinced everyone that we were neither
cerebral arteriosclerotics nor paretics and quickly straightened out our
Hoffmans, Babinskis, and Rombergs.
Dr. Bagley continued to conduct the senior neurosurgical instruction
with the constant assistance of other members of the staff. Students were
unperturbed by the pitiful expressions on the faces of patients as each
in turn would mercilessly pound with reflex hammer and gleefully try
to elicit ankle clonus.

In our senior year, we found ourselves catheterizing bladders, dilating
urethral strictures, and palpating prostates. Dr. Toulson, in a series of
lectures, demonstrations, and slides had set the stage in the junior year.
Clinics and ward rounds in small groups and attendance at operations
and upon the outpatients at both University and Mercy Hospitals rounded
out the teaching program. Final oral examinations in G.U. surgery by
Dr, Toulson added abundant humor to academic labors as the good surgeon,
it seems, always joined in the conspiracy to pass even the thickest of us
with flying colors.
Dr Harry Hull's lectures and Dr. Milton Wilder's ward rounds at
BCH introduced the junior class to the principles of orthopedic surgery.
In the senior year, Drs, Voshell, Ullrich, and Wilder continued the program
of didactic, clinical, bedside, and outpatient instruction at both University
and Mercy Hospitals. With zest and gusto we splashed rolls of plaster
of Pans in water and then tangled up the limbs of our buddies. With
such solid experience we were soon plastering victims in the Accident Room.
Pleasant respite from downtown Baltimore routine was furnished by
trips to Dickeyville and the Kernan Hospital for Crippled Children, where
discussions and demonstrations of physical and occupational therapy were
included in the program.

Before the junior class, Dr. Looper delivered lectures on Nose and
Throat and Dr. O'Rourke on Otology, supplementing their words with
lantern slides. Lantern slides offered the knowledge-thirsty members of
the class of '50 some of their most profitable moments, the prevailing
darkness being quite conducive to meditative slumber.
At first with hesitation, then with dexterity, we inserted tongue-
depressors into mouths and specula into ears in our search for inflamed
tonsils and punctured drums. Under the guidance of Drs. Zinn and Kayser
at Mercy Hospital, we peered down bronchoscopes and esophogoscopes
while our confreres held unwilling subjects on the table in the chamber of
Dr. Monte Edwards, in his introductory words, included among his
many titles "rear admiral" and "super duper pooper snooper". In mild
and soft-spoken words, he then explained the seat of trouble in matters
proctologic. In dispensaries and clinics, we acquired what in some circles
is considered a very rude habit by inserting instruments up the distal end
of thirty foot tubes. In addition, the gloved forefinger became a fountain
of diagnostic knowledge. In the latter days of his senior year, the student
spoke with assurance as he ordered his patient to assume the angle.

Encountering no cephalo-pelvic dispropor-
tion, Dr. Louis Douglass pulled a model baby
through an adequate model pelvis. Simple
enough. He repeated all phases of the procedure
with facility. This first demonstration convinced
some of us as juniors that even DeLee and
Greenhill was within the realm of human capa-
bility. The words of Drs. Dixon, Kaltreider,
Siegel, Savage, and Reese were readily com-
prehensible. While in the O.B. dispensary, some
of us even mastered the art of palpation with
the aid of Leopold's maneuvers. However, the
task on the threshold of which even the most
courageous of juniors trembled, was reserved
for a week of confinement at BCH. Since we
worked at night while attending classes during
the day, this became a test of human endurance.
We delivered a few times, we observed more
times, we blundered many times. Occasionally
we could successfully feign ignorance, which
considering our medical inexperience might be
believable, but blood pressures and urinalyses
through the night befell our miserable lot.
BP's. Need more be said?
In our senior year we consumed two concentrated weeks in obstetrics,
the outside service being our exclusive domain. This entailed hours spent
in some of Baltimore's finest slums. The pitter-patter of the feet of little
mice across one's sterile field may be a distasteful consideration to the
laymen, but the dashing men in white were called upon in the face of many
unfavorable circumstances. Some of us left our namesakes behind to be
borne for a generation by little bundles of joy.
In the dispensaries we performed the manifold phases of obstetrical
work. On the seventh floor of University Hospital, we were assigned pa-
tients in labor and at times even our brighter members were reddened by
a BOA in the hall or the labor room.

Professor of Gynecology
Head of the Deportment
Dr. J. Mason Hundley, Jr. and his staff of
capable assistants, Drs. Brady, Cornbrooks,
Diehl, Diggs, and Dumler combined their varied
talents during our Senior year to keep a steady
flow of practical gynecological information
emanating from the operating amphitheatre, the
bedside, and the dispensary — all this to the
everlasting edification of the eager senior stu-
dent. And they made it interesting. We had
been fully indoctrinated during our third year
with a lengthy series of formal lectures mostly
by the ''Chief'. We learned with amusement
that "woman" might be defined as a ^'consti-
pated biped with a backache". We were to hear
about this on other occasions. We heard all
dbout "father's tumor", and were apprised of
the fact that "cabbage heads" fall heir to far
less of the complaints peculiar to the female
of the species than their visceroptotic sisters.
It remained for the Department of Surgery,
however, to aptly define that oft performed Gyn.
surgical procedure, supravaginal hysterectomy,
as an operation in which one takes away the
baby carriage and leaves behind the play pen.
We learned further that the uterus, an organ
of infinite possibility for pathology, could be
radiated, scraped, hung up, or taken out. With
counterfeited demeanor of professional imper-
sonality we listened to the most intimate of
feminine matters and acquired a knack and a
knowledge concerning that gold mine of pathol-
ogy, the female generative tract.
Dr. Kardash, will it change my nature?
Now, when was the last time —
Didatically anesthetized by means of a rapid
induction during our junior year, we progressed
to a practical status, when as seniors we dis-
pensed the "sleepy stuff" under the watchful
eye of Dr. Nelson and his staff in the glittering
cubicles opening to the east off the seventh floor
surgical corridor. There in the misty, half
awake of the predawn we gradually wakened
under the apprehensive eyes of the surgical staff
as the patient sank to the proper plane of
oblivion, and we settled down to maintaining
the desired relaxation without too greatly
abusing the P-R-B P. This we learned in
addition to basic anesthesiology: (1.) The
speciality is an all important adjunct to good
surgery requiring in its ideal practice a thor-
ough knowledge of physiology and an infinite
capacity for meticulous routine and exact ob-
servation. (2.) Anesthesists should be bred with
a blood pressure cuff growing from their left
ear; a complete distaste for late morning sleep-
ing; the ability to breathe pure ether indefinite-
ly; and a prenatal course in the psychology of
patients and surgeons.

In the junior year Dr. Freennan's energetic,
enthusiastic lectures fended off Morpheus dur-
ing the post prandial siesta hours and reviewed
the anatomy and physiology of the eye. As
seniors we, per force, began to see eye to eye
with the patients, as armed with the knowledge
gleaned from Dr. Knowles' discrete,^ well de-
fined, capsule lectures with the pearly margins
(Dermatology was taken concurrently, y'know!)
we probed the secret fastness of their orbs.
Professor Knowles also conducted ward rounds
in the University Hospital, reviewing for our
benefit the ophthalmologic pathology currently
in the house. In the clinic, where we daily
tangled forelocks and swapped dandruff with
the patients in our direct ophthalmoscopic ex-
aminations, Dr. Ruby Smith reviewed our cases,
demonstrated techniques of examination, and
finally by dint of her gentle but inflexible
catechisms we began to use our ophthalmoscopes
for examining eyes intelligently and fruitfully.
Dr.. Osazewski, peering out from behind his
inevitable cigar, too played a role in our intro-
duction to perimeters, tonometers, retinscopes,
etc. and their use in the diagnosis and treatment
of the "Diseases of the Eye".
Dr. Ruby Smith discourses with pupils. What wall?
''When in doubt, get an X-ray — get one
anyway, to be sure" — so we've heard. After
you get same, how do you read it? To answer
the question, we have called on the Drs. Kilby,
Davidson, Macht, and Barnett, who have en-
deavored to teach us the art of interpretation
of those shades of gray. We look at areas of
shadow and clearing, thinning and thickening,
crater and mass — and wonder that so much can
be seen in mere black and white. Fortuitous
After didactic lectures at City, we could at
least talk X-ray. The fog that was an X-ray
film began to clear when we became Seniors,
for we had numerous conferences of watching
X-rays — they were the nicest classes, where we
always got to sit down in a dimly-lit room for
a quiet, peaceful hour of just watching. At
last we came to the practical aspect of looking
at films of our own patients. The mysterious
"X" in X-ray was gradually solved, and those
films came to have meaning. Of course, it's
still safer to read the reports of the Roent-

The Class of 1950 is fortunate in that it is the first class to benefit
by the revised senior curriculum instituted in September 1949. The result
of many years of planning by several successive faculty committees, the
outstanding feature of the new schedule is the division of the school year
into fields of concentration embracing the major divisions of medical
The Senior student spends two months each on Medicine and Surgery,
including the specialties in each branch. One month each is spent on
Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, and Psychiatry, with an additional
month divided between Anesthesiology, Dermatology including Syphilis,
and Ophthalmology. During each period the student's entire time is devoted
to the current subject or subjects, except that on Wednesday the entire class
meets for clinical pathological conferences and one or two formal lectures,
including a weekly lecture in Public Health.
Except for the Wednesday lectures, didactic instruction has been almost
entirely discontinued, a second major objective in the formation of the new
curriculum. Instruction is given by supervision during clinical clerkships
on the wards and in the dispensaries, by attendance at staff and depart-
mental conferences, and at seminars conducted primarily for the senior
Almost without exception the Senior Class is enthusiastically in favor
of the new system. In former days the senior year was a mad potpourri of
unrelated subjects, in which the unfortunate student floundered around in a
vain attempt to learn everything at once, with the result frequently that he
learned very little if anything. Today with his time devoted exclusively to
one subject, it is felt that far more can be, and has been, achieved. In
addition, midyear and final examinations have been abolished; instead,
written or oral examinations, or both, are given as each group finished
a particular field of concentration.
The class is divided into eight ten-man groups, each of which is
subdivided into two groups of five; one ten-man group is engaged in each
field, rotating through all divisions; one month each is spent on Medicine
and Surgery at Mercy Hospital, including the Mercy dispensaries. All
other teaching is carried on in the University Hospital and Dispensary.
As a result of the small groups, a large amount of individual instruction
and supervision can be given-
The Faculty, on whom a far greater burden has fallen than in former
years, has responded enthusiastically, as have Mr. George Buck, Super-
Intendant of the University Hospital, and the Sisters of Mercy, of Mercy
Hospital. Without exception every department has extended itself to the
utmost to provide every facility to the Senior Class. As in any new
scheme, weaknesses have been found; many have been eliminated as they
appeared during the current school year. Some faculty members feel that
they are not given time to present their subjects properly; others are not
convinced entirely of the desirability of the new plan. On the whole how-
ever, it seems safe to say that the curriculum is forward-looking in concept,
that it has been wholehearted support from the Faculty, and an enthusist'c
reception by the student body.

PHI DELTA EPSILON
The Delta Epsilon chapter of Phi Delta Epsilon
was chartered at the University of Maryland in 1906
just two years after the founding of the fraternity
at Cornell University by a group of inspired men
who sought to uphold and maintain the highest stand-
ards of ethics in the practice of medicine as well
as to promote the highest scientific, literary and
educational standards and to develop good fellow-
ship, equality and unity amongst its members. In
this spirit the Delta Epsilon chapter has carried on
and includes in its activities an annual lectureship
featuring renowned authorities of the medical world
as guest lecturers, a monthly scientific meeting led
usually by members of the medical faculty of schools
other than the University of Maryland the purpose
being to provide a broader more intelligent outlook
on many subjects of medical interest and of course
many opportunities for meetings on a social level
where lasting bonds of friendship and good fellow-
ship are established to be maintained long after under

was given for the new members.
December 17th was a big day for Beta Alpha; —
the day of its annual Christmas Party for six orphans
complete with Christmas tree and gifts for the child-
ren. The day was spent dodging shots from new
water guns and escaping the blare of Christmas horns.

Shortly after the turn of the century a young
group of doctors organized together and under the
leadership of Dr. Harvey Beck initiated the Zeta
Chapter of the Phi Beta Pi Fraternity.
From this beginning the fraternity was active
around the campus until the Second World War. The
normal pattern gave way to the accelerated medical
program and gradually the fraternity became inactive
A period of quiescense lasted until October of
1947 when Dr. Wm. Duffy of the class of 1940 took
the first step toward reactivation. With the aid of
Dr. E. Uhlenhuth, Dr. Roderick Shipley, Dr. Will-
iam Kammer, Dr. Frank Hacktel and Dr. Friedenwald
plans were made for the reactivation. Four fresh-
man, William Shea, Harry Knipp, James MacDonald
and Raymond Clemmens were initiated into the Zeta
Chapter and once again the Phi Betes were active on
the campus. From 1947 till the present the fraternity
has grown to an active membership of thirty four,
and now occupy the two rooms above the book store
"across the street".
During this half century era of strife and tri-
umphs many men have become a part of this famous
professional medical fraternity whose sole purpose
is the betterment of the medical profession by the
production of superior physicians.

ALPHA OMEGA ALPHA
"To be worthy to serve the suffering''
Alpha Omega Alpha is a non-secret Medical Honor Society. It is
composed of (1) regular members consisting of medical men and women
who as undergraduates have given promise of becoming leaders in their
profession or who later have attained such leadership, and (2) honorary
members consisting of physicians who have attained distinction in any
worthy line of human endeavor, and of persons, whether physicians or not,
who have gained unusual recognition in fields related to medicine.
The aims of the Society are the promotion of scholarship and re-
search in medical schools, the encouragement of a high standard of charac-
ter and conduct among medical students and graduates, and the recog-
nition of high attainment in medical science of practice and related fields.
The most prominent requisite of membership is high scholarship in a
broad sense — scholarship that is more than a record of high average grades
and facility in memorizing information. It connotes continuous industry,
effectiveness in methods of work, facility in correlating facts and an
intellectual grasp that permits application to new problems. Election to
this society is not only a recognition of accomplishment as a student, but
also an insignia of both promise and expectancy of leadership in some phase
of medicine after graduation.

Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society was founded at University
of Illinois College of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois, August 25, 1902 by
William Webster Root, M D., and since that time has enjoyed remarkable
growth and influence. At present there are fifty six active chapters in the
United States and Canada.
Beta chapter of Maryland was installed on December 9, 1949 in a
ceremony at the Hotel Stafford with Dr. H. C. Byrd, D.Sc., LL.D., Presi-
dent of the University presiding. The charter was conferred by Dr. Walter
L. Bierring, M.D., National President, Alpha Omega Alpha, and was ac-
cepted by Dr. H. Boyd Wylie, M.D., Dean, University of Maryland,
School of Medicine. The Chapter was installed by Dr. Josiah J. Moore,
M. D., National Secretary, who presented Keys and Certificates of Member-
ship to all new initiates. Greetings to the new chapter were extended by
Dr. Alan M. Chesney, M.D., Dean, the Johns Hopkins University, School of
Medicine, and an address, "The Hanor Fraternity in Medical Education",
was given by Dr. H. C. Weiskotten, M.D., Dean, Syracuse University, Col-
lege of Medicine and Chairman, Council of Medical Education and Hospi-
Charter membership in the Maryland Chapter was conferred upon four-
teen members of the faculty, five recent graduates, and twelve students in-
cluding nine members of the senior class, and three members of the junior
class- To this group will fall the responsibility of organizing the Beta
Chapter, perpetuation of its membership, and continuation of the high
ideals for which the Society stands.

Christian Medical Society
The Christian Medical Society is a nationwide interdenominational
organization of Christian physicians, interns and medical students with
a two-fold purpose: (a) to present a corporate witness for Christ to the
profession at large; and (b) to gain the mutual strength and encouragement
afforded by meeting together for Bible study and prayer.
The University of Maryland chapter is but one of twenty-odd groups
in medical schools and centers throughout the nation. The local group be-
gan by holding monthly dinner meetings at the YMCA five years ago. A
year later, the monthly meetings gave way to weekly Bible studies, which
at present are held from 5:15 to 6:00 each Thursday afternoon in the
Student Lounge of the Gray Laboratory Building.
Although membership is limited to medical students and physicians,
those in allied fields are welcome. The meetings have been attended not
only by medical students and interns, but also by dental students and nurses.
At these weekly meetings, the Bible Study has been led by doctors and
prominent businessmen as well as various ministers. Students of all faiths
and denominations are welcome. A wide variety of topics have been used,
and each address is followed by an open discussion in which everyone is
free to participate. The discussion, however, is always centered upon the
Bible, which is held to be the inspired word of Cod (II Timothy 3:16),
and upon Christ, who is presented as the Son of God and a Savior from sin
for those who accept Him (John 1:12).

MILDRED EILEEN CHRISTOPHER
Chrissie's witticisms and cheerful per-
sonality have made her one of the most
popular girls in school. Collecting cow-
boy records and swinging the Alleman-
de-Ho and a Dosey-Doe are her hobbies.
She enjoys reading everything from Dr.
Elliot's Harvard Classics to Dr. Kin-
sey's Report. Chrissie favors the Acci-
dent Room, but is a "natural" in any
field of nursing. A few words with her
will erase a snarl that fairly shouts of
C. I. distress and broken arches. The
adage, "Put yourself in his place" comes
easily to her- So to you, Chrissie, a
Medal of Merit, for your optimism and

JANE KATHRYN BLUNT
Janie, known to some of us as J.B.,
is that cute little freckled blonde whose
hilarious laughter keeps up the morale
of everyone living on the sixth floor of
the Nurses' Home- We shall never for-
get Janie's tonsils and toenail, which
are now rare specimens in the Pathology
Dept. After graduation, Janie plans to
join the staff of her alma mater. By
the way, Janie, are there any more cute
little girls in Centerville who are in-
terested in nursing? Best wishes and
may all of your luck be good!
Whenever a noble deed is wrought,
Whenever is spoken a noble thought.
MILDRED SMITH DUNCAN
Linville, North Carolina
Smitty, our only C.I., is a southern
gal with a gentle voice and a serious
face. She does her work with confi-
dence and builds confidence in her co-
workers. Her efficient work has won
her the respect and adoration of pa-
tients and staff. Her fiery temper, not
too easily aroused, is long-lasting once
it comes to the surface. After two years
in the Navy, the floor is still a 'deck'
and the dining room a 'chow hall'. Plain
and outspoken in her every manner, she's
tops any way you look at her. Future:
Bud, Jr. and Arabia in the fall.
MARIE BARBARA CORECKl
If, before receiving your O.R. train-
ing, you would like to know the duties
of a scrub nurse, just ask Marie. This
talkative brunette gave up her secretar-
ial career to enter the nursing profes-
sion. She is friendly, neat, vivacious,
and an efficient nurse as well. If you
lived on the sixth floor, you would be
familiar with Marie's musical notes
coming from the shower q.n. It seems
as though many of her classmates have
acquired a liking for Polish foods now,
especially pastry. In the near future,
Marie plans to change to "Mrs." Best
Our hearts^ in glad surprise!
To higher* levels rise.
MARIE ELIAZBETH MANN
Staten Island, New York
To live with Liz Mann is to live with
a dynamic force such as has hitherto
been almost unknown. The girl verit-
ably, like the proverbial Rice Crispie,
snaps, crackles and pops. One can al-
ways rely upon her to do and say the
properly conventional things in the most
deliciously personalized and unconven-
tional manner. I remember one time in-
deed, when she overturned a sailboat,
not with muscle, but with sheer joie de
vivre. My thanks to her for mushroom
soup at midnight and seemingly inane
conversations at 6 A.M. May we reap
together some of the oats we have sown
DORIS ELIZABETH HICKS
Sparrows Point, Maryland
If you ever need any pointers on the
procedures and practices of night nur-
ses just ask Doris. Most of her three
years of training has been spent on
night duty — more or "Les". How she
keeps that round face and those rosy
cheeks on her self-imposed diet of to-
matoes and tomatoes oniy is the mystery
of the dietary department. Any future
plans for Doris begin with Les and end
with a vine-covered cottage. Her ever-
lasting smile and out-standing ability in
Pediatrics have left their imprints and
will undoubtedly do likewise in the fu-

SELMA RUTH MERVIS
Have you ever strolled down a corri-
dor in the hospital and noticed a charm-
ing brunette walking nonchalantly with
a tray of medicines? Yep, that is Mer-
vis. Always a smile and a complaint
for everyone. When reminiscing, we
can't forget the food Selma bestowed
on the third floor. The delicious apple
cake and grapefruit candy. Wonder if
Selma can cook as well as her mother.
What about it "Bucky"? Selma plans
to remain in Baltimore and in the pro-
fession until she receives her MRS. de-
gree. Luck and happiness to you, Sel-
INEZ ALVENIA PARKS
Greensboro, N. C.
We remdmber blonde hair, blue eyes
and a gay pleasant smile for everyone.
We remember a southern accent which
is anything but the usual slow drawl.
We remember, "Yes, that's really my
name, but please, just call me "Beanie".
We remember her pacing the floor im-
patiently and muttering hopelessly,
"Warren, won't you ever get here on
time?" We remember last Christmas
when she returned from her vacation in
North Carolina with a sparkle in her
eyes that matched the sparkle on the
third finger of her left hand. But most
of all, we remember "Beanie" . . .
And lifts us unawares
Out of all meaner cares.
JEANNE ROWE SNYDER
One reason why gentlemen prefer
blondes is our Jeanne. Her blonde hair,
blue eyes and cheerful, sympathetic
manner are great assets in boosting her
patients' morales. Although seeming to
be on the quiet side, she is always to be
found in the middle of any student ac-
tivity going on. To prove this, she is
chairman of the Social Committee for
the March class of 1950. Being one of
the best student scrub nurses, she will
probably always have a place in the
operating room, but her future plans
now only involve Bruce. Best of luck
in the future, Jeanne!
DOROTHY ANN BARTZ
We know Dottie as a carefree, easy-
going person. She is an ardent dog
lover — Fifi being her favorite. The cas-
ual onlooker may think her shy, but
those who know her realize that she has
her very own sense of humor. She is
a reliable and capable nurse- Everyone
has days in the operating room that they
will never forget — Dottie's was the day
of her first G.U. scrub. Want to be
a private G.U. scrub nurse, Dottie?
Dottie aspires to higher education, and
who knows? Someday she may have a
training school of her own.
Honor to those whose words or deeds
Thus help us in our doily needs.
GRACE FLORENCE BASSLER, B.S.
"Craca/' a charming brunette with
the most expressive brown eyes, came
to us after spending two years at Col-
lege Park. There are some people who
always are having the most unfortunate
incidents happening to them — and
"Craca" is one of them. Remember all
the time you could spend in the Oper-
ating Room, because you had so few
classes, Craca? Her efficient manner,
keen sense of humor, and pleasing per-
sonality make her well-liked by every-
one. Besides nursing, "Craca's" future
includes raising Great Danes. In the
near future, watch for signs reading,
"Dogs for sale"!
EVELYN JOYCE BATES
A welcome addition to our class,
Joyce joined us in August, 1949, after
transferring from Maryland General
Hospital. Her will to work and easy
manner have won her many friends and
a well earned place in the class of '50.
However, it was not all smooth sailing;
for with a husband, a six months old
baby and her housekeeping, Joyce has
had more than a full time job. Yet
graduation will mean no vacation for
her — only another mile stone reached —
for her ambitions extend to college and
the Degree of Bachelor of Science. Best
of luck to a most ambitious young lady.

MARGARET MAY BEEDE
Combine dork hair and wide-spaced
green eyes staring into the future, with
a radiating personality and a will to
undertake any job at hand with sincer-
ity and vitality and it is no wonder she
was our choice for class president.
Peg's greatest loves are music and phil-
osophy. Full of fun and energy. Peg
always has new ideas, and new places to
go. She enjoys long walks, swimming,
and has a great admiration for horses
and riding. From teddy bears to panta-
loons to wild horseplay to symphonies
to formals. Yes, Peg is our all around
DOLORES ESMARELDA BLAHUT
Behind those sincere blue eyes we
find merriment and impishness. She is
a girl we all love to have around, wheth-
er it's to share her generosity or accept
her understanding personality. She
loves books, music and the outdoors.
When she isn't headed for that bunga-
low tucked away in the pines, she has
the hall blocked with furniture from
her room. The deft ability she displays
in sporatic room arranging amazes all.
Her favorite expression is, "Ya know
what — I'm happy." Full of initiative
and energy, "Dede" will progress in any
field she enters. Best of luck to the

MARY ALICE DOWE
'There's a chapter in our life called,
'Mary'," and what a chapter! Mary is
our sleepy time gal and our mischief
maker, whom you'll find full of ener-
gy and spirit (if you catch her awake)-
Frank and straight to the point, she says
what she thinks and does what she
pleases; we never know what to expect
next — it's usually the unexpected. We'll
never forget her short, short haircuts,
those catnaps in class, the brownies her
mother makes, her strong love for the
South, her practical (?) jokes, her
turned up nose, or her high ideals and
MARGARET PATRICIA FERGUSON
I know a Ferguson named Pat. I may
even venture to say I understand the
enigmatic mechanisms of her personal-
ity. One finds, on close inspection, the
classic "Psychopathia Idiosyncrata" par
excellence (please note Drs. Kraft-Eb-
bing). For who would eat spaghetti
with chopsticks in the small hours of
the morning for the sole purpose of
solidifying the oriental and occidental
cultures? Please don't misunderstand;
Ferguson per se is the typical, whole-
some spirited American girl — it's just
these nomadic, electrical impulses that
emanate from I know not where, but
gravitate to Ferguson as did Newton's
apple to Mother Earth.

JOAN ELAINE GLEASON
A native Baltimorean, Joan gradu-
ated from Catonsville High School in
'47, after which she took a course in
Nurses' Aid Training at University Hos-
pital. From this she decided she wanted
to be a nurse. Joanie will always re-
member our probie days back in the
annex, night duty on 3D, scrubbing for
Dr. C.R.E., and parties at Sheppard and
Pratt Hospital during her psychiatric
affiliation there. She has a devilish,
teasing manner and always seems to be
laughing. Darned cute too, with dark
brown hair and eyes to match. Future:
General duty nurse.
MARION GRAHAM, B.S.
Marion, our twinkly-eyed Florida
cracker, is as enthusiastic and resource-
ful as a side show barker when plan-
ning our various social activities and
whether she goes or not is irrelevant to
her that is. The cute way she says,
"No" on the telephone simply drives the
more ambitious gals crazy- Does Bos-
ton have more to offer than its outdated
Harvard accent? Marion swims like
Williams, dances like Powell, and rides
the aquaplane like Graham. Needless
to say, she is an excellent nurse. She
loves music, concerts and, oh yes! — we
almost forgot "Stupid, Junior". How
is that droll piece of felt?
The wounded from the bottle plain.
In dreary hospitals of pain.
Jeannie is a slim, fair-haired lass who
hails from Virginia. She graduated
from Parksley High School in '47 and
came immediately to Maryland to join
the class of '50. She loves to eat but
never gains weight which perplexes Dr.
Townshend no end! Lucky, lucky girl!
She is our efficient class secretary and
spends her leisure time selling station-
ery. Always calm, cool and collected,
she has a nonchalance that is convin-
cing. She likes nursing very much and
claims Pediatrics as her favorite field.
All in all, she is a true and loyal friend,
and will never let you down.
MARY MARGARET GUYMON
Whenever you hear the plaintive
strains of a cowboy ballad drifting
down the hall, you can be sure Marge
Guymon won't be far behind. To hear
her talk, one would think Texas the only
worthwhile spot on the globe. Actual-
ly, she's quite a nurse, and is particu-
larly interested in the field of psychia-
try. Her favorite sports are horseback
riding, swimming . . . and aviation, eh
Marge? And you just haven't lived un-
til you see her B-Bop tap steps. By the
way, what about the transcontinental
calls and her plans for the future? Well,
we think you had better ask the General.

ETHEL KIM HOM
Known as "'Kim"- Her famous last
words are, "Tm telling you!!" And I'm
telling you, Kim has a quietly pleasing
manner about her that makes her choice
of profession a wise one. She is torn
between outside interests at Temple Uni-
versity, Washington College and Johns
Hopkins. (Wonder what's wrong with
our own homefront?!!) None of the
passing class of '50 will ever forget the
sombre moments in classes abruptly in-
terrupted with laughter by her dry hum-
or. She has a pair of Esquire legs,
raven black hair and gullibility. To all
around her, Kim spells fascination. Fu-
ture: Honolulu, Hawaii.
MARGARET VIRGINIA HERBERT, B.S.
Seat Pleasant, Maryland
A cheerful smile and the ability to
take everything in her stride describes
"Herbie". "Herbie", or Margie as she
is sometimes called, is a very willing
and conscientious worker, who has found
her special field of nursing in pedia-
trics. Before entering U.H., "Herbie"
spent two years at College Park in pre-
nursing. She will long be remembered
for the night we celebrated becoming
seniors — and the appendectomy that re-
sulted afterward! In the three years
that she has been here, "Herbie" has
proven herself not only a good and true
friend, but also an excellent nurse.
Lo, in f-hot house of misery,

CAROL MAREDITH HOSFELD, B.S.
As we gaze across the crystal ball,
we see Madame Zombie. It's really Car-
ol, the nurse in our class with a friend-
ly smile and sympathetic voice. We
can't think of Carol without thinking of
night duty. Carol came to us after spend-
ing two years at the University of Mary-
land. We have come to know her as
an enthusiastic student, a capable nurse,
and a loyal friend. In Carol we have
a talented musician. With her we never
know what to expect next — it's usually
the unconventional. Now to add to
Carol's problems, we've made her treas-
urer of the senior class.
RUTH LOUISE HUTCHINSON
Ruthie has a very cooperative dis-
position and is liked by all. Always
neat and clean in appearance and has
0 smile for all. She is a conscientious
nurse who really enjoys her work. She
likes the winter months — -with lots of
snow. Her favorite food is salami and
sweitzer cheese on an onion roll. She is
always saying, "All righty". . Her fav-
orite pastime is trying to rhumba and
she's usually found with Bob. She dis-
likes night duty and hates to study. Fu-
ture ambition is marriage to that man
of hers — Bob. How about it, Ruthie?
Pass f-hrough the glimmering room.
And flit from room to room.
LILA MAE JOHNSON
Linthicum Heights, Maryland
Serenity as an appetizer. Then take
some sincerity and pleasantness, a slight
pinch of temper, handful of ideal-
ness, moderate amount of reservedness,
extensive amiability. Mix well. Add
a dash of sweetness with just a bit of
blushing for color. Garnish with charm
and serve with naiveness. Result: Lila
ELEANOR COLTER KELLEY
"'Mickey'", full of fun and laughter,
will never be forgotten for her originali-
ty. She is always heard saying, "Jeeps!
Am I late! I have to get dressed!" Fav-
orite pastime is getting the dents out of
the fender before Bob sees them. She is
a brownette with green eyes who knows
her Spanish, and can really rhumba and
tango; but we're all waiting to see her
do that Irish jig! For was there ever
a Kelley, who didn't like green and who
didn't have just a touch of the Irish in
her? Luck and happiness to our col-
And slow, os in o dream of bliss.

LAURA JANE KIRKWOOD
Anyone who has known our ''Kirk''
knows that "Hee-haw" of hers which has
endeared her to us for three loud years-
She is that tall, sophisticated beauty,
who habitually will surprise strangers
with her "spontaneous gaiety". While
often giving the impression of being
quite aloof, she is a warm-hearted nurse
and friend in every sense of the words.
Her extra-curricular activities include
twenty-four hour duty in 1037; frequent
trips to Al's with Stevie for chili con
came or spaghetti; and cutting Stevie's
hair almost biweekly.
Soon; Hawaii with Stevie.
THERESA MARIE KRZYWICKI
Theresa, known to many of us as
"Dimples", is a girl with a booming
personality. Always laughing, and my,
such nice big dimples! She is hardly
ever seen off duty without Gene. Night
turns into day when she is on night duty
with you, and she can cheer anyone up
with her carefree attitude. No task is
too big or too small for "Dimples".
Patients can't help but get well with such
a cheerful and capable nurse around.
Marriage is Theresa's future destiny, so
we wish the best of luck and happiness
to her always.
Her shadow, as it falls
Upon the darkening walls.
JACQUELINE B. LOAR, B.S.
"Jackie", — a bundle of vivacity, good
nature and friendliness. She studied
Pre-nursing at College Park and plans
to go into psychiatric nursing in the fu-
ture. B is her letter — "Bing" (no re-
lation to Crosby), bubble bath, beauti-
ful clothes, and books. An avid reader,
especially of such subjects as, "Why Peo-
ple Commit Murder", she maintains al-
most sole support of the Book of the
Month Club. Her hobby is knitting and
consists of a tie, two years in the making
so far. Latest report has it that her
goal is in sight — only 2,532 more rows!
Good luck to Cumberland's finest!
BARBARA LEE LONGEST
"Nudie" is what most people call her.
Her favorite pastime is sleeping and
traveling back and forth from the hos-
pital to her home, although she can fre-
quently be found in a certain outboard
motor boat. Her greatest love is cats,
even though she is allergic to them. Her
pet peeve is the trend her "bangs" take,
especially after wearing a nursery cap-
Her favorite saying is, "Anybody got a
butt?" "'Nudie" has a very pleasant per-
sonality and is a conscientious nurse,
well-liked by both patients and person-
nel. Her ambition is to get hitched.
As if a door in heaven should be
Opened and fhen closed suddenly.
NANCY ELIZABETH MEREDITH, B.S.
Park Hall, Maryland
Known as "Nanc'\ Likes dancing,
strawrides and reading — intellectual or
otherwise. Seen either knitting argyles
or sleeping. ''None" is a very compete
person in anything undertaken, and is
quiet except at about 3 A.M. She smiles
readily at everyone, never seems to be in
a hurry, and decorates the room with
pictures of a certain Army Air Cadet.
This hazeleyed lassie hails from Park
Hall (we're told it's in the middle of
Destination: Vacation from pills and pa-
ients and "Nudie". But we're sure Nan-
cy will make her home at University and

GLORIA ELAINE MULLEN
Three years ago, a whirlwind blew in
and deposited a beautiful, blonde bun-
dle at U.H. Said bundle turned out to
be "Glo", who has not yet stopped whir-
ling. "Moon" has contributed much to
all who have known her by her striking
appearance, boundless energy, sincere
understanding and that bubbling laugh
having a personality all its own. She
possesses an invaluable asset in her abil-
ity to accept unpleasantness, forget it,
and enjoy life. Besides claiming an en-
viable scholastic standing, Gloria is an
expert nurse and truly one whom we
shall be proud to claim as a fellow grad-
The vision come and went.
The light shone and was spent.
BARBARA HARBART MUZZY
Long Green, Maryland
Well, if it isn't our Muzzy — grace and
beauty describe her best. We can't call
her one of the city gals, because part
of her heart remains back in the ole
county town — Long Green, Maryland.
Always happy with few or no worries-
Her main extra-curricular activity is
"Buzz", and I don't mean ringing door-
bells. Barbara has a great fondness for
homelife, and we predict for her a happy
and successful career and marriage.
With such a future to look forward to,
who could wish for anything more?
MARY BARBARA PHELPS
Linthicum Heights, Maryland
Barb is one of those jolly, happy-go-
lucky nurses with a good disposition at
all times. She has that winning smile
and hearty laugh, which give her a per-
sonality all her own. Although she is
a regular outdoor girl, the joy of her
life is "Ed". With hardly a serious
moment and a carefree perspective she
enjoys her work and makes it enjoy-
able for her co-workers. Her main in-
terest at present is to lose the twenty
pounds which she gained during her three
years of training. Good luck to you,
Barbara, in whatever you undertake.

MARY JOHN POUPALOS
Charleston, South Carolina
"Johnnie'" . . . efficient and reliable;
a cheerful addition from the ole South
with her ready smile and calming in-
fluence by the patient's bedside. The
"Professor", always ready to lend a help-
ing hand with those extra classes. Sweet
brown eyes filled with mischief make
her one of the best liked girls in our
class. Her charming personality will al-
ways be remembered by her many
friends. Her favorite song is "Carolina
Moon". Charleston's gain will be our
loss, but many best wishes for happiness
and success will always be extended from
her friends here. Good luck, Johnnie!
MARGARET ELIZABETH RITTER
Psggy, who was born in Baltimore,
graduated from The Notre Dame of
Maryland Preparatory School. She is a
brunette, full of fun and laughter, and
who never tires of talking about clothes.
She is known to be one of the fashion
plates of our class. She likes to dance
and even sings (when in the mood). Her
favorite saying is, "Oh, Johnnie!" There
is never a dull moment in the life of
Peggy, so I leave saying — brown eyes,
brown curls — what more for a cute girl!
Best wishes for a bright and shiny fu-
That light its rays shall cast
From portals of the past.
MARTHA HOWARD ROLLISON, B.S.
Martha Rollison, better known to her
friends as Marty, will always be re-
membered for her winning smile and
her pleasing personality. Marty is
usually found on her way to Hamilton,
Virginia to see her main interest, Eddie.
When we hear outbursts of laughter com-
ing from a group, we know that Marty
is the center of attraction and has come
out with one of her hilarious sayings,
which was really meant in all serious-
ness. Marty is a very conscientious
worker, and her wonderful sense of hum-
or and way of winning friends have
made her an outstanding nurse.
MARY LEE SMELSER, B.S.
An attractive blonde, full of laugh-
ter, describes Mary Lee. One will al-
ways remember her broad smile through
moments of sadness or happiness. Her
main interest, other than nursing, seems
to be centered around College Park, and
the Sigma Nu fraternity. Mary Lee's
favorite outburst will always be, "Do
you know?!", especially when meeting
her roommate on the floors. Mary Lee
will always be remembered for her good
sense of humor, even through her mom-
ents of fury. If one knows Mary Lee,
they will agree, she is an ideal and true
A lady with a lamp shall stand

GWENDOLYN LOUISE STATLER
Cwenn, our fun loving, peppy, care-
free girl from Pennsylvania, thinks there
is no place on earth like^ it. She has
sparkling brown eyes and hair to match.
Frequently, she is found reading while
listening to Beethoven's Symphony Num-
ber Seven. Other times, she is found
eating at the nearest restaurant. Gwenn
is a great lover of sports and dancing.
She enjoyed psychiatric nursing as well
as the life at Sheppard- Oh! What
a life! She plans to travel in the near
future and then to come back to do
general duty nursing.
ANNE STONE, B.S.
The hair is blonde with a definite
white streak. The eyes are big and blue.
The personality is dynamite. She's our
own little mood girl. Being one of our
five year students, she is studying hard
for that B.S. degree. On the side, she
dwells in home-spun poetry and South
African Vildt music. The man of men
in her life is, "Doug". We hope he
knows about her weakness for practical
jokes. There's never a dull moment
when "Stoney's" feeling her wild oats.
Here's to "Stoney", may her cup of hap-
piness never run dry.
A noble type of good.
MARGARET ANN WARFIELD
NO! You'll never see Maggie alone!
Gay and bubbling with laughter, she's
always in the midst of fun and mis-
chief, takes great pride in calling her-
self a Yankee, and blushes gracefully
when told about her beautiful "bedroom
eyes". She has a deep interest for her
work and those with whom she works.
When asked which section of the hospital
she likes best, she promptly replies,
"twelfth floor". Her sincere confidence
and understanding have won her many
good friends. We'll always remember
her winning smile, sense of humor, stuff-
ed animals and popularity. Her future
at present points to far off Arabia.
EDITH ELLEN VIEREGK, B.S.
Tacoma Park, Maryland
"Edie", our tall, terrific blonde, was
Gollege Park's loss and our gain in Oc-
tober, 1947. Having completed her pre-
nursing course as an outstanding student,
she maintained that same standard at
University Hospital. Sincerity, depend-
ability, and sense of humor made her
a favorite of our class (and the house
staff). "Edie" can always be found
wherever the strains of Brahms or Bee-
thoven emanate, giving the old masters
competition with the staccato of her knit-
ting needles and laughter. Funloving
and a good sport, she will be part of the
memory of our student days. Good luck
— future Mrs. William Wroe.

Gatun, Canal Zone
Betty graduated from Cristobal High
School, Panama in '47 and came to the
states in the summer of that year. She
likes the states very much, having been
born here, but she'll never get used to the
cold weather. She has terrific time try-
ing to keep worm in the winter- Betty
is always the same, happy and consid-
erate. Her interests lie chiefly in sports
and dancing. The part of training she
likes most is duty on the surgical wards.
In the future Betty wants to go back to
Panama and continue with general duty

JANET LORRAINE WHITE
Jan always aims to please. Really
does things with those eyes! She is ever
conscious of others needs and desires.
Her favorite foods are fried chicken and
soft crabs. Likes autumn best. Loves
to dance, swim and write letters- Dis-
likes long bus rides and hates ta study.
Always saying, "I haven't got a thing to
wear!". Her pet diversion is the Naval
Academy. What's this about a fellow
named, "Charlie"? Future ambition is
to find a sure cure for insomnia. She
plans to do her nursing at Peninsula
General Hospital in Salisbury.
PHYLLIS JEANNE ZIMMERMAN, B.S.
Last but not least, we have Phyllis,
who boasts of being one of the tallest
in our class. Her height is exceded on-
ly by her pleasing personality, friendly
smile, and her quiet, conscientious man-
ner. Her half awake, troubled expres-
sion at 6 A.M., lets us know how she
feels about greeting the morning. Phyl-
lis is a willing worker and is always
ready with her unconscious sense of hu-
mor. She enjoyed two years at College
Park preparing for nursing. Now that
she's social chairman of our class, Phyl-
lis has found that "life has its little
THE BLACK FIFTY EXPRESS
It was with the mixed feelings of any traveller about to undertake
a new and adventurous journey, that sixty-nine passengers paused to register
and boarded the two sections of our train in 1947. It might be described
as an air of anticipation, but there was that touch of uncertainty, and a
new feeling of strangeness mixed with challenge that made those first few
miles of the journey so important.
We became well acquainted with our fellow travellers as we struggled
up the steep grade of probie-hood. As we looked at the charted course,
the route seemed long, and we wondered if such a journey could be en-
dured. But, as the miles passed, we found difficulty only in keeping up
with them. We busily learned the arts of lettering and speaking, became
dictionaries of Anatomy, and curiously peeked at anything we could get
under a microscope.
Then came the first stop — that shining hour, when we stood on the
platform with lighted candles pledging ourselves to our profession and
proudly climbed back aboard, taking our places as part of the student
body. Now occupying a better car, we were able to see more of the
scenery and began to feel a deeper appreciation for the elements around us.
Relief and night duty had been heretofore unexplored; but now they belong-
ed to us, and we alternated vigils during these hours for most of the re-
Now near the end of our first year journey, we found ourselves divided
into groups, sidetracking to the various specialties- We found ourselves
as cooks, paging Apple Brown Betty, gaining pounds on milk shakes and
fixing the most appealing trays? ? ?
We faced Obstetrics with cord sets in our pockets, one ear out of
our scrub caps, listening for that first sound of a B.O.A., teaching new
mothers, and walking endless corridors to and from the ''angel factory".
Next stop — Towson, where we spent a three month sojourn at Sheppard
Pratt Hospital, spiced with those home-made cream puffs, long hikes in the
country, and that one late leave 'til midnight each week. We wondered
at times who should be locked up and occasionally locked up the wrong
In Pediatrics we tried our maternal skills with those lullabyes and
stories(?); and in vain we tried to keep Reggie from eating everything in
sight. We'll never forget those homemade cokes, those sleepy nights in the
Premie and little Roberta —
We were confronted with a real challenge in the operating room, being
placed on a pedestal (but only in accordance with our height). We wit-
nessed the thunder and calm of a storm, of which we were an integral part,
scrubbing buckets and walls, and staying spotless and perfect. Yes, we
witnessed real drama, both comeday and tragedy — and we loved every min-
ute of it.
We were not only sidetracked for work, however. For early in our
trip we decided that all work and no play would make '“'50" a dull class.
So, with this in mind, the "Black 50" set out to uphold its name in ex-
tracurricular activities. We partied after hours, celebrating anything and
everything, and were well represented in every activity — from the small
informal dances in the nurses' dining room to the Xmas and spring formals.
Our anniversaries, however, deserve very special mention for they were
probably celebrated the most extravagantly.
Our trip now almost ended, seems short but full of memories dear
to each of the passengers on "The Black Fifty Express".
